Explore the extraordinary stories behind some of the greatest - and strangest - adventures and explorations in human history.
THE ODYSSEUM explores extraordinary journeys,pilgrimages, expeditions and meanders of the mind that helped us to figure out our place in the world.
We will learn about epic trips to the bottom of the ocean,to outer space and to the deepest cave on earth ("like climbing an inverted Mount Everest") as well as micro-journeys, such as Xavier de Maistre's six-week odyssey around his bedroom and the tale of a Nazi who attempted to walk around the world without setting foot outside of his prison.
Brought to you by the bestselling authors of THE ODDITORIUM and THE MYSTERIUM,this book is a call to arms to step off the beaten path and embark on your own eccentric,remarkable odyssey.
