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.

Global Learning Adventures – The Steel Industry in Port Sagunto, Valencia, Spain
Global Learning Adventures in Port Sagunto, Valencia, Spain. Blast Furnace Nº.2 is the only surviving blast furnace tower of the three that were in operation at the height of the steel industry’s activity in Puerto de Sagunto. The structure, which is 64 metres high, was built in 1922 and rebuilt in the 1960s. Operating at 1000 degrees centigrade, it was used to create the steel and iron that was employed in the large construction projects of the 20th-century, such as the building known as the “finca de hierro” in Valencia, the Windsor building in Madrid, the Telefonica building in Seville and the Seat factory in Barcelona. Following its restoration, it received the Europa Nostra 2012 (European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage) Award. Visitors to the furnace tower can discover how it worked and find out about the steel-making industry that gave rise to the Port of Sagunto. (http://www.valenciaturisme.org/en/municipio/sagunto)
