On November 6 and 7, 2013, more than 26,000 geocachers attended almost 1200 Geocaching in Space Events in close to 40 countries all over the world to watch a Travel Bug® make its way to the International Space Station (ISS). American astronaut Rick Mastracchio, who was asked to take the Travel Bug to space by its owner Czissors, plans to use the Travel Bug as a tool to teach students on Earth about geography and science.
The Travel Bug has made its way around the earth many times aboard the ISS. We think this is a great time to look back and say “Thanks” to all you geocachers out there, who hosted and attended events, posted on the Travel Bug details page and have shared pictures, videos and stories with us.
Here are some of the most interesting pictures and videos we got to enjoy from all over the world:

When I'm outside I'm happy. Besides geocaching I love gardening, hiking, cooking and spending time with my wonderful two and four legged friends. Got eight legs? Sorry, but please stay far away from me!
