Scott Huler has made a very original trip. After reading Homer's Odyssey, one day he set out to emulate the adventures of the legendary Greek hero following his steps through the Mediterranean.
Like the protagonist of the Greek epic, Scott left his pregnant wife at home and went to Troy and with the backpack in tow he resumed the steps to Ithaca.
Probably 30 centuries have passed since the Greek poem was written, times change and to travel around the Mediterranean, this curious backpacker exchanged the ship for buses and ferries.
He tells us that during his journey through the Mediterranean islands he did not meet the enchantress Circe or the cyclops. Among other places, it crossed 20 Turkish cities, Athens, Tunisia, Malta to finally reach the west coast of Sicily.
He tells us in his book that he has published with the title of No-Man's Lands: One Man's Odyssey Through The Odyssey.
