  • The Lotus Eaters
  • The Land of the Laestrygonians (Cyclops)
  • Aeolia- The God of the Winds
  • Odysseus and his crew was washed up to the land of Lotus eaters. Some of the crew got off the ship and the natives convinced them to eat the Lotus plant. This plant was a drug that makes you lazy and forget about their goals and home. The sailors wanted to stay on the island, but Odysseus brought them back to the ship to continue the journey.
  • Aeaea- Circe's Palace
  • Odysseus and his men see there's cheese and animals, so some of his crew and him decide to get out, and make themselves at home inside the Cyclops' cave. Polyphemus saw they were eating his food so he ate 2 of them.The Cyclops asked for Odysseus' name, and he said nohbdy, because O was planning on making him blind.O and his crew gave the Cyclops wine that made him sleepy.When he fell asleep O and his crew got a 6 foot log, sharpened it, burned it and stabbed him in his eye.Odysseus and his crew took 3 of his sheep, then the Cyclops put a spell on thee whole crew.
  • The Land of the Dead
  • Aeolus saw that Odysseus and his crew have been trying to arrive home for years, so he tried to help out by getting a bag and putting all the bad winds into a bag so there would be no hassle getting home. But on the way home, the only thing odysseus told the crew was to not touch the bag, then he fell asleep.They got so close to Ithaca that they could see it.Some of the crew members were dying to see what was inside the bag, and others were telling them not to open it because it's the masters bag.The crew members didn't listen, and opened it. The bad winds went back into the sky and the ship flew back and led them to Circe's Palace.
  • The Sirens
  • The crew gets to Circe's Palace and a few go to see if there's anything to eat.They were drugged and turned into pigs, and one comes back to the crew as a pig and they all want to eat it.Odysseus goes to find the crew.While climbing to Circe's Palace, Hermes gave him a herb called moly to not get affected by the drug Circe's going to give him.Odysseus overpowers Circe to turn his men back to humans again.She said the only way she'll do that is if Odysseus sleeps with her, so he did. They ended up staying there for a year, but they thought it was a day. They left to the underground.
  • In the Land of the Dead, Odysseus first approached one of his crew members who died foolishly by getting drunk, walking on a roof, and breaking his neck by falling off.Then, he approached his mother who took her life for him.Next, he saw Tiresias and needed advise from him. Tiresias told Odysseus that Poseidon is angry at Odysseus because he blinded his son (the Cyclops) , so him and his crew are going to have many obstacles on their way home. Tiresias also told Odysseus that when he arrives home, there are going to be other men eating from his food which are the suitors. And that he must get them back by slaughtering them.
  • Circe instructed Odysseus and his crew to plug their ears with beeswax, so they won't be fooled to follow the beautiful voices and be killed.After Odysseus covers their ears in beeswax, he has the crew blind him from the mast of the ship.The master had the desire to listen to the wonderful voices, but his men didn't let him.
