    Panikian Island Another Pride of Zamboanga Del Sur

    It was supposed to be a taxing hour and a half ride to the municipality, but my excitement and curiosity seemed to have overwhelmed and have put back the exhaustion. In fact, never in a certain moment within the trip going to the island did I get sleep or nap although I was not able to sleep well the night before.
