Traveling into Outer Space

Not sure if I am someone who would be excited to go on a trip to Mars or explore outer space, but I am someone who loves traveling.

Running has become my excuse to travel and as such I took upon goals like 

-- running a marathon in all the 7 continents.
-- running a marathon in all the 50 states and DC

I am enjoying my journey and as of this writing I am done with 6 continents and 38 states. I will be running state 39 marathon this weekend in Tulsa, OK and will soon be doing my 7th continent marathon in Antarctica.

As such eventually my hope is to complete 
-- running a marathon in all the countries in the world (atleast the 195 U.N recognized, if possible all the 206 countries).

I love traveling. Going places, meeting different people, experiencing their cultures, enjoying the amazing local food.

Traveling helps me to go to places I have never been before, experience things I have never experienced before. It has become  my way of adventuring and exploring things.

Variety is the Spice of Life.

Traveling gives me the variety I need in my life. 

Don't get me wrong, traveling is not sexy all the time. It is stressful. It involves lot of planning and preparation and lack of it could make it expensive. 

As in life everything has a trade off and traveling is one that is worth all the trade offs. Experiences are all that matters.

Yes I love the people I have met, the memories I made along the way. So not sure  a space where there are no people like Mars, atleast that we know of, would be exciting. Yeah the exploration and the adventure might be exciting and I need the 7 billion people we have here. May be once Mars becomes as exciting place as Earth, I might consider it. Until then no to the blank space. Now let's enjoy some Blank space from Taylor Swift ;)
