Mr. TWS and I are loving getting to know our new community in the Valley of the Sun. There is so much for residents and visitors to see and do in Phoenix Metro, Scottsdale, and many other nearby places. I’ve always believed that the best way to get to know a place is by asking the locals. Here are some great tips by Phoenix blogger and writer Julie Cohn.

By Mr. TWS — Sweeney and I kicked off our Christmas season a little differently this year because our relocation to Scottsdale, Arizona from the San Francisco Bay Area was still in progress.

Mr. TWS and I have been pretty quiet on the blog recently, but our personal lives have been bustling with activity and new adventures.

Since our first visit to Tredozio, Italy in June of 2013, I’ve dreamed of a return to this serene village of Emilia-Romagna in the Apennine mountains. During our April trip to Italy, my dream was fulfilled.
