The Lotus Eaters
Troy is an otherwise welcoming land with a temperate climate, grassy planes, and occasional foothills. Here, you will be on a guided tour of the ruins of the city where you will also learn about the way of life of its now extinct inhabitants. We included this in our cruise b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶s̶u̶p̶e̶r̶v̶i̶s̶o̶r̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶l̶d̶ ̶u̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ to shed some light on Odysseus's incentive for single-handedly murduring all of them.
Our second leg of the journey will take us to Ismarus, a brisk, rocky, wet environment. We've included this location in our trip to truly give you the sense of exploration, excitement, and of course helplessness that Odysseus felt when he arrived here too! Yes, this is indeed the exact site in which he had fought back, and was promptly almost killed by the ciconians! While you are here, you will be helping us dig a well to replenish our inevitably depleted water supplies.
The third destination of our cruise is the island of the Lotus Eaters. You will be taste-testing a special version of the lotus flower; one that has had the neurotoxin that induces memory loss (mostly) bred out of it! This mouth watering experience has been included to help you understand e̲x̲a̲c̲t̲l̲y̲ what Odysseus's men experienced when they just simply didn't want to leave!
