Commander islands

A magnificent vista on the ocean's edge. The local islanders say that wherever they go, they know that this place is better. Here, a piece of heaven belongs to them. What attracts them here?

A range of serene islands in the middle of the Pacific ocean. Some who visit stay here forever while those who leave miss what was. What kind of magnet attracts people there? The vast expanses, the rocky paths or the sight of fur seals playfully frolicking on the beach? Here there's nothing the eye can stumble against. The three basic elements of life: the land, the ocean and winds exist in harmony with the people. Wherever they go they know that this place is better. Here, a piece of heaven belongs to the islanders.
