Fulbright Association insight tour brought new friends to Iceland
We had just barely said goodbye to the Fulbright-Hays group when a group from the U.S.-based Fulbright Association (FA) arrived in early August. The Commission had been asked to put together a program for the group, which we did with pleasure. The tour focused on environment and culture. The ED took time to accompany the group to West and North Iceland, where they enjoyed a glacier cave excursion, a mass and concert at Hólar, whale watching and more. And of course, the group met with interesting experts along the way, including i.a. the rectors of Hólar University College and Bifröst University. This was a great opportunity for the Commission to meet with old Fulbright friends and make new ones.
