June 10, 2017 - 12 midnight.
We started traveling that early to maximized our time to cope the 9-10 hrs travel time to Tabaco City Port and to arrange our vehicle booking for RO-RO (Roll on - Roll off) to San Andress Port San Andres, Catanduanes, a third class municipality on the island few kilometers away to the capital Virac.
