In his first voyage, Gulliver is washed ashore after a shipwreck and finds
himself a prisoner of a race of tiny people, less than 6 inches tall, who
are inhabitants of the island country of Lilliput. After giving assurances of
his good behavior, he is given a residence in Lilliput and becomes a
favorite of the court. He is also given the permission to roam around the
city on a condition that he must not harm their subjects. Gulliver assists
the Lilliputians to subdue their neighbors, the Blefuscudians, by stealing
their fleet. However, he refuses to reduce the island nation of Blefuscu
to a province of Lilliput, displeasing the King and the court. Gulliver is
charged with treason for, among other "crimes", "making water" in the
capital (even though he was putting out a fire and saving countless
lives.) He is convicted and sentenced to be blinded, but with the
assistance of a kind friend, he escapes to Blefuscu. Here he spots and
retrieves an abandoned boat and sails out to be rescued by a passing
ship, which safely takes him back home.

CONCLUSION OF PART II
When the sailing ship “Adventure” was blown off course by storms and
forced to put into land for want of fresh water, Gulliver was abandoned by
his companions and founded by a farmer who is 72 feet (22 m) tall .
Gulliver estimated a man's step being 10 yards (9.1 m). He brought
Gulliver home and his daughter cared for Gulliver. The farmer treated him
as a curiosity and exhibits him for money. Since Gulliver was too small to
use their huge chairs, beds, knives and forks, the queen commissions a
small house to be built for him so that he could be carried around in it was
referred to as his 'travelling box'. In between small adventures such as
fighting giant wasps and being carried to the roof by a monkey, he
discussed the state of Europe with the King. The King was not happy with
Gulliver's accounts of Europe, especially upon learning of the use of guns
and cannons. On a trip to the seaside, his travelling box was seized by a
giant eagle which dropped Gulliver and his box into the sea, where he was
picked up by some sailors, who returned him to England.
