Visit my city: Phoenix, Arizona

Between the months of March and November, the first thing you notice upon leaving Phoenix airport is how hot it is.

The ultimate Irish road trip

It happens to the best of us: you spend those long months of exam revision thinking about how you’re going to spend your summer.
