Yakutia is fascinating!.. Especially when seen by GoPro and Drons!

Here is the story. Alexey Pavlov is the famous photographer in Yakutia. Yakutsk-based TAYA Model Agency has many beautiful young women. LenaTourFlot LLC has a pretty old, but stylish Soviet passenger ship that tends to make journeys between Yakutsk and the Arctic settlement of Tiksi. Yakutia has the awesome magic Lena River.

When I see awesome photographs of my lovely Yakutia, I have a strong feeling to not say anything, apart from one sentence, «Enjoy Yakutia!
