After escaping from the Cyclops' island, my crew and I came upon Aeolia. The wind kind, Aeolus, was kind enough to trap all of the dangerous winds we might encounter into a bull's hide bag.
My crew and I set sail once again, and came upon the Laestrygonians. They were heartless cannibals who devoured almost all of my men and my ships. My ship was spared as the gods would have it, along with the crew members on my ship.
