Nights in Tortola…and maybe a nice commute…

Sometimes we forget how nice, things are in our neck of the woods. For instance, while people in the Islands will complain about the work, the people and the slow pace of progress; there are some amazing things that one can take for granted i.e.

  • A cool night breeze with the smell of the ocean
  • Clear nights drinking good rum on the beach and having some local delicacy : Shark and Bake, Crabs, Fried Fish etc
  • A harvest moon on the ocean horizon at night
  • Living on the mountainside facing the Caribbean Sea, and from the back of the house, it is possible to get this view without being a multi-millionaire


Or how great the commute to work can be in the morning. None of this traffic jam bullshit or get smoke and exhaust in your face, but rather a nice island drive like this
