I finally decided to raise my family in Arizona after finding a great place to work here in addition to the rapid social and financial growth of the Phoenix area...
We took advantage of the real estate boom while we lived here - and during the economic recession of 2008, we continued enjoying living in this wonderful state.
Hopefully, the economy will get better...and we are confident it will...
UPDATE 2013: Economy is getting better. Also recently, I have been practicing on making videos. Here is my new Arizona video:
This is where I take friends and family when they visit us :)
Here is my daughter comforting her brother at the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona - her brother is two minutes younger. We have lost count of how many times we have brought them to this magical place, and we do enjoy raising our kids in Arizona. The people are friendly, the city is booming and developing, and we don't have harsh winters, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis....just the sun (and 3 months of really hot weather).
But we always find ways to escape the heat and cooler places are just either a drive or a plane away.
We have not even scratched the surface of all the things you can find in Arizona. Interestingly, the land area of Arizona is almost exactly the same as the land mass of our mother country, the Philippines. The freeways are clean and wide and I enjoy my long drivings, but sometimes we also take the train to the Grand Canyon. The Sky Harbor Airport is a busy international airport with direct flights to South America and Europe, and of course free Wi-fi!
I hope you enjoy the pages and tips I will be adding about my home state as I continue being a VT traveller!
Saguaro is pronounced “suh-war-o”, although I say “SAHG-WA-RO” which is wrong…but then who cares... this Cacti could... more travel advice
This is a favorite retirement community now or maybe a second home for vacations for some -- but the place is booming... more travel advice
