Sakhalin. An island in the Pacific, North-West of Hawaii

Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. This name sounded to me like some inaccessible place in the Russian Far-East. So when I was offered to go to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the midst of the wintertime, I recalled my principle of always being ready for new experience, and never refusing a good offer! I first looked at Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on a map to found out where it is. Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk is on Sakhalin Island, in the Pacific, close to Japan’s Hokkaido and Vladivostok, North-West of Hawaii. So Sakhalin is physically closer to Hawaii than Moscow. That’s gave me the idea of this catchy title.

But the city has a lot to show. Have a look
