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). It was a very long weekend. We arrived in Jeju Friday afternoon. From Gwangju there’s a small […]

Starry Night over the Lake

For my graduation I asked for a new camera. I had been taking photos with my old DSLR Canon EOS 40D (which I think is over 10 years old!). However, I shared it with my dad and wanted one of my own. Also, with a lens on the body, it made for a hefty camera! […]

Costa Rica: Dolphins & Scuba Diving

Manuel Antionio National Park Dives Unfortunately, the diving and snorkeling were the most disappointing parts of the trip. It is often said that the Pacific cost of Latin America has very variable diving and often more murkier waters on any given day due to the ocean currents. This could not have been more true for […]

It was a quaint, touristy town. It’s claim to fame, is the halibut fishing – the reason we went there. Unfortunately, the morning we went out (again, super early fishing), the weather had taken a turn for the worst (as it can suddenly do in Alaska), though it was beautiful and clear yesterday.

We had a beautiful sunset tonight. So we are hoping for the best for tomorrow’s fishing expedition! We will be fishing for Halibut in Homer, but weather is a fickle thing. Anyway, I made my dad pull over when I saw this. We spent a good hour searching for a road that could get me […]

Welcome to the Fjords

After a few days of fishing (and yesterday’s great success), we decided to take visit to Kenai Fjord National Park on a boat tour. I had never been on a tour like this, and it has been many years since I was on a whale watch, so I was so excited. We could possible see […]

We Are Eating Good Tonight

So we spent most of the day, yesterday, out on the Kenai and Russian River. We ended up catching a good number of Dolleyvarden, as well as one or two rainbow trout (the first fish on, was mine – the largest rainbow of the day!). Sadly, it broke loose just as we brought it to […]
