#160 10 Minutes with Sam & Mel: Tall Ships, Hamilton & a Research Sabbatical

It’s time to write. And research. Join us as we enter the research and writing phase of our NYC journey. Let’s call it a writing retreat where we meet people who give generously of their time and knowledge with no expectation of return.

If you love history and the gilded age, then this one’s for you. Think tall ships, maritime history, old mansions and sticky buns.

Meet Pamela Grimm, author of Destiny’s Gold and Destiny’s Freedom. Pamela is an amazing historian and a person I had the privilege to meet whilst in NYC. Enjoy ten minutes with Pamela this episode with a full interview to come when we return to Oz.

Making friends is all part of life’s journey and how lucky are we to stumble across experts in all facets of maritime history; from bookshop owners to local historians to people who just want to help us on our journey, including our amazing Airbnb hosts in Rondout, in Down-town Kingston, New York. Listen out for our interview with Joe and MaryAnn  next episode.

In the meantime, enjoy ten minutes with us as we reflect on our month in NYC and what it means to travel with purpose.
