  4. HAPPY NEW YEAR from #zojoji temple.  Each year in Japan shinto shrines and Buddhist temples fill up with people for #hatsumode, the ceremony of the visit to ring the bell at first light of the first sunrise of the year. Stands of street food line the walkways leading their way to the ancient grounds. At zojoji crowds flocked to not only pray at the temple but to see #tokyotower as well. #happynewyears #nye #japan #Japanese #natgeo #natgeohub #natgeotravel #natgeotravelpic #instatravel #travelgram #travel #worldwide #shinto #fulbright @the_fulbright_program @natgeo @natgeotravel #harajuku #instago #instasun #chasinglight #traditional #newyears2016

  8. One of the best parts of traveling and studying abroad is the amazing friends you make who are a part of your life long after your trip is over. Do you have a New Year’s resolution to stay in touch with friends and loved ones around the world? Let this picture inspire you! We absolutely loved this wonderful #ExchangeOurWorld update from #Fulbright’s Lisa Hartwig. Thanks for tagging your Instagram post so we could discover it and share it here on our Instagram account! "Fulbright gave me so much in two years. But best of all are the strong women I met who inspire me and also care enough to keep in touch from afar. heart @itszuz your card arrived on Christmas Day, and I miss you more than ever. I won't forget how you let me buy a ticket to crash your auntie's house on Christmas in Slovakia last year with only one week's notice. The walk in the quiet forest with @ncnammer still sits with me. Tell your grandma I said hi, and that I'm still knitting. laughing Thank you for taking the time to handwrite a note. Anyone who knows me knows I love handmade/ thoughtful anything. Sending you all the love from Tokyo. I can't wait for you to come visit. #fulbright #exchangeourworld #holiday #card #write #snailmail #xo”

  11. The blaring horns and screeching tires paused for a second. The shouting vegetable dealers and bickering children looked up in silence for just a moment. Yea, none of that actually happened, but it sure felt like that. Perhaps I was the only one in this chaotic, loud city of 6 million, who stopped to notice the sun dance in the skies as he retired for the day. Perhaps the dance was just for me? Then, it struck me. That's exactly what he wanted me to feel, to learn to feel. Silence, tranquility, and  solitude amidst the clamor and din of life. It was a powerful sight and even more profound lesson. I took notes as he made his point: Shanti is a state of mind--no, a state of the self, the atman.

  12. Count the small things in life because they truly add up. So excited for these gifts to arrive in Gimcheon for a Christmas party for orphans. My host family and I sponsored six students and it was fun to go shopping with my host mom for things on their wish list! I ran into my 3rd grade students who became my elves because I was running late and carrying the gifts in paper bags by myself on my way to the post office. They took all of my bags, insisted on carrying them themselves and went to morning glory with me to pick out all the gift bags you see. Their small acts of kindness was so encouraging to me. I came back later to the house and host mom said "Our family would've never thought of doing this. How did you know to do something like this?" Christmas isn't about a season of receiving; it's a season of giving. 2015.12.11 #readyforthechristmasparty #fulbrightkorea #fulbright #reflectionsofkorea
