What are some of the 100 things you’d like to do before you die? Most people would think of something that includes beauty, exoticism and of course something that is memorable and adventurous.
On September 1 2011, ABC News editors published an article about David Freeman’s 1999 book 100 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE. The article, which can be found in the travel section of abcnews.go.com, included an additional eight noteworthy things recommended by expert authors and editors based on their favourite destinations.
Sailing in the British Virgin Islands was listed second, with skiing in Zermatt, Switzerland being first on the list. Karen Schaler, recapped her experience in the BVI and endorsed the BVI’s famous ‘Pain Killer’ cocktail as one that visitors must try. Praising the sailing experience offered within the BVI, Karen Schaler, author of ‘Travel Therapy’ says, ‘Chartering your own sailboat and stopping by Peter Island, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke is a glorious experience.’
‘The BVI Tourist Board is honoured about the country being added to this esteemed list. It not only shows that our island is beautiful, but that we as a territory provide a spectacular experience that stands out above the rest, and as we continue to market Brand BVI the world will know of this remarkable product that we offer,’ said Hadassah Ward, Director of Tourism.
