Thanos is on a quest to visit every country in the world and has already visited 146 UN countries.  

Thanos initial focus in life was education and business, not travel.  In fact, one of his first overseas trips was a basic package trip to Sri Lanka.  After completing his doctorate in theoretical physics and starting his own business in India his life eventually transitioned into a life of travel.  Now adventures include summiting the seven summits with three already completed.  Thanos also enjoys road trips like a 3 week, 3000 km motorbike trip across Mongolia.  Thanos also appreciates a good land crossing such as when he entered Mali and ended up spending the night in jail.  Thanos will also share with you why he needs to go back to Laos.  Please listen in and enjoy.
