How are rainy days best spent? Indoors, of course! Where it’s warm, dry, and cozy. But you don’t necessarily have to be stuck at home. You can go on a rainy-day getaway to soak up the sentimental mood and do a slow, laidback activity such as reading a book. One of the best places to escape to is no other than Tagaytay, a city magically engulfed in fog on rainy days and always watching over Taal Volcano.
