Geisthovel aims at discovering which countryside or rather the stories about it might have served as an inspiration for Homer. He gives a detailed and lively description of the individual steps of the "Odyssey", starting in troy and finishing in Ithaca. That way he includes the countries of Turkey, Tunisia, Malta, Italy and of course Greece.
