Departing from each port, travelers are exposed to two serious risks: either not finding the life and people that they left behind upon their return or not returning at all. Each Odyssey is an unreserved challenge of fate and angry Gods alike. Travelers may expect a clear, carefree sail and an effortless arrival at their destination, without a hitch. However, this is a naive expectation when compared to the adventures of Homer’s Odysseus. Unexpected stops at new crossings and getting to know new people and cultures transform a simple crossing into a lifetime experience.
