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.
