Fulbright Spring Conference on Jeju Island

We had our Fall Conference in the historic city of Gyeongju and this past weekend Fulbright had its Spring Conference hosted on Jeju Island, often referred to the “Hawaii of Korea” (although the palm trees are actually imported).

Everything starts blowing around and you can just feel the electricity in the air while the sky grows ever darker. There is something I love about thunder storms.

Paint the Sky with Color

There is something magical about a tropical sunset, anyone will say so. Our last day was one of the most spectacular sunsets that we have seen all week (and there have been some pretty beautiful ones). The sky was just so vibrant! I thought it would be nice to share some of the sunsets that […]
