    Hi,

    For the last years I was enjoing watching pictures on this forum, spending hours every day and having so much fun.. Today I thought of maybe posting my own pictures from the rides I had in Russia, the place where I was born and grew up, and still have my heart over there.

    The place is called Sakhalin Island, it's on the Russian Far East, right north of Japan. We call this place small, however it's almost the size of UK, but a hell of a lot less people... Most of the palces are absolutely wild and to get from any point to any point means to ride on a deep, deep sand and over rocks on the beach. Well, look at the pictures, say what you think!
