The Journey of the Half Moon resembles the journey of the ship 'de Halve Maen'. The ship left Texel, The Netherlands, in 1609 with the mission to find via Nova Zembla a passage towards India. In September of the same year, the ship sailed onto the Hudson River at the height of Nieuw Amsterdam, later renamed to New York.
