Barcelona, Spain Highlights

We took our first long (ish) holiday post-COVID in April this year. We chose Spain because it offered a bit of all the European charm--great food and wine, good weather, mountains and beaches.

Located on Makati Avenue at the City Garden Grand Hotel, it's a great place to relax and watch the sunset over Manila's skyline. While I have been to Manila several times, this is one of those...
