Life in the BVI – Post Irma

I'm not going to lie, life isn't easy living on a island that has just been destroyed by a Category 5 hurricane, however it's not the worse thing in the world.

Boomslang

On your days off there's nothing better than jumping on your own little vessel and doing a spot of island hopping, having some well deserved beach time, snorkeling, hiking to the top of different islands in time for… Continue reading Boomslang
