Lecture: "The Off-Beat Traveler: Cruise by Cargo Ship with Eric Young"
Ever wonder what it would be like to see the world through the eyes of a sailor? Eric Young did just that when he set sail for adventure aboard two Rickmers ships. He and his wife Sarah embarked on a six month journey that was far from an ordinary vacation. Living with eastern European officers and a mainly Filipino crew, visiting with locals and expatriates in ports across Europe and Asia, avoiding a tropical depression and typhoon, and narrowly escaping a collision at sea are a few of the interesting sea tales he will share from their voyage.
Join the Houston Maritime Museum as Young shares his photos and experiences from the unique perspective of a civilian at sea.
