24 hours in Phoenix
In 2012, I was recruited to take on a new job, but I had to agree to spend the majority of my time working in Phoenix, Arizona. My nearly 15 years of living near the beautiful beach in Fort Lauderdale made me question whether I wanted to migrate to a brown, hot desert. Nonetheless, duty called and professional opportunities like this sometimes only come once in a lifetime. After 3 nights on the road (felt like 10 in Texas alone), I pulled the car into my new desert oasis.
