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.

La beatificación y canonización de santa Faustina contribuyeron mucho al desarrollo de este santuario, también influyeron las peregrinaciones papales. Karol Wojtyla (St Juan pablo II) desempeñó un papel muy importante en esta obra, como sacerdote y obispo de la Diócesis de Cracovia, y como Papa; pero también la labor del arzobispo de Cracovia, el cardenal Franciszek Macharski, fue importante, al crear una Fundación destinada a llevar a cabo la construcción de la Basílica de la Divina Misericordia y los edificios contiguos para albergar a los peregrinos. El 17 de agosto de 2002, el Papa Juan Pablo II consagró la nueva basílica, lugar en el que consagró al mundo entero a la Divina Misericordia.
