During Odysseus's journey, he came across Aeolus's island. Aeolus provided hospitality and a gift to them. They then came across the Laestrygones, who bombarded their ship with boulders.
The land of the dead
While Odysseus was on the ship, his men were in Circe the witch's island. They got tricked by her favorite man, and she gave them a drink that contained a substance and used her powers on them. When one of Odysseus's men ran to the ship to warn Odysseus, he went to rescue his men with the help of Hermes the god.
