Ticao, PH: The Right To Travel One’s Own Country | Bicol | Scoop.it

These fishermen would gladly bring you to Ticao, content from receiving gasoline as payment.

Not even being fatigue from fishing the entire evening would deter them from accompanying anyone to see Ticao.Simple men they really are; interacting, sharing stories and showing off the beauty of their home province to travelers are their life’s pleasures.
