Historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes is ready to set off on her 1,700-mile voyage, tracing Odysseus's winding path home in Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey. She has left the Turkish coast, where the Trojan War took place, to sail the hostile waters of the Aegean Sea, zigzagging to the Greek islands of Fourni, Chios, Lesbos, and Samos. Along the way, she'll battle storms, check out a 1,500-year-old shipwreck, and explore the rich cultures, traditions, and histories of the islands, enjoying great food, drink, and company along the way.
