During the summer of 2014, we (my husband, Bill, and I) decided to move from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands to the Pacific Northwest. In April of 2016, the move became a reality. Over a year ago, friends who live in Indiana had planned to go – with a group of friends – to the Indy 500 (hereafter known as the Epic Indy Weekend). We told them if we were able to sell our condo in time and move to the States, we would join them. This is our story of moving from a small island in the Caribbean to the Pacific Northwest, our road trip to Indy, and how well we adjust (or not)to a new - and cold - place.
