2016 - Global Learning Adventures At Sea - BREXIT Referendum

Global Learning Adventures At Sea - BREXIT Referendum

June 2016. Baltic Sea Cruise aboard Navigator of the Seas. We visited Southampton, UK, Oslo, Norway, Copenhagen, Denmark, Tallinn, Estonia, St Petersburg, Russia, Helsinki, Finland, and Bruges, Belgium. At sea we lived BREXIT Referendum Day where the UK decided to leave the European Union. Aboard we talked to UK and European citizens and discussed their reactions. When you watch this video, you can see what happened in the UK after this historic day.

We also use this clip to summarize our 40 years of traveling, 50 countries visited, and 12 cruises so far. We emphasize the importance of traveling, learning about cultures, politics, history, and economics, and living historic events like this one.

2016 - Exploring Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Poland

Summer 2016. After visiting Krakow, we took a train to Oświęcim to visit Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Here are some of the photos. Some of them are in black and white as we found out that was the color of the Holocaust. Everything was grey. 

Our contribution to #VoicesOfHope.  Field trip to Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Memories and lessons learned in Auschwitz do not have color. Everything here was grey. #auschwitz #globallearning2016  #neverforget #MessengersofPeace #OutdoorsClassroom

2016 - Czech Republic, Prague.

On May 17 we went to Prague. Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It is the 15th largest city in the European Union. It is also the historical capital of Bohemia. Situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava River, the city is home to about 1.26 million people, while its larger urban zone is estimated to have a population of nearly 2 million. The city has a temperate climate, with warm summers and chilly winters.

Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with the Prague astronomical clock, the Jewish Quarter, Petřín hill and Vyšehrad. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
