    It seems as though even as a Navigator, seeing everything with my eyes taught me the rights and the wrongs of that I was doing. My education was a hands on experience of real life whenever I ventured on a voyage or exploration. On my voyages I have made frequent achievements. To start off, on June 27, 1607 in Spitsbergen, I was awestruck with the fairly large amount of whales and walruses that I saw. My finding led to the making of the Spitsbergen whaling industry where whales are processed by…
