I saw this question on Reddit and a great answer. Thought I will share.
Why does light travel? 

Everything, by nature of simply existing, is "moving" at the speed of light (which really has nothing to do with light: more on that later). Yes, that does include you.
Our understanding of the universe is that the way that we perceive space and time as separate things is, to be frank, wrong. They aren't separate: the universe is made of "spacetime," all one word. A year and a lightyear describe different things in our day to day lives, but from a physicist's point of view, they're actually the exact same thing (depending on what kind of physics you're doing).
In our day to day lives, we define motion as a distance traveled over some amount of time. However, if distances and intervals of time are the exact same thing, that suddenly becomes completely meaningless. "I traveled one foot for every foot that I traveled" is an absolutely absurd statement!
The way it works is that everything in the universe travels through spacetime at some speed which I'll call "c" for the sake of brevity. Remember, motion in spacetime is meaningless, so it makes sense that nothing could be "faster" or "slower" through spacetime than anything else. Everybody and everything travels at one foot per foot, that's just... how it works.
Obviously, though, things do seem to have different speeds. The reason that happens is that time and space are orthogonal, which is sort of a fancy term for "at right angles to each other." North and east, for example, are orthogonal: you can travel as far as you want directly to the north, but it's not going to affect where you are in terms of east/west at all.
Just like how you can travel north without traveling east, you can travel through time without it affecting where you are in space. Conversely, you can travel through space without it affecting where you are in time.
You're (presumably) sitting in your chair right now, which means you're not traveling through space at all. Since you have to travel through spacetime at c (speed of light), though, that means all of your motion is through time.
By the way, this is why time dilation happens: something that's moving very fast relative to you is moving through space, but since they can only travel through spacetime at c, they have to be moving more slowly through time to compensate (from your point of view).
Light, on the other hand, doesn't travel through time at all. The reason it doesn't is somewhat complicated, but it has to do with the fact that it has no mass.
Something that isn't moving that has mass can have energy: that's what E = mc2 means. Light has no mass, but it does have energy. If we plug the mass of light into E=mc2, we get 0, which makes no sense because light has energy. Hence, light can never be stationary.
Not only that, but light can never be stationary from anybody's perspective. Since, like everything else, it travels at c through spacetime, that means all of its "spacetime speed" must be through space, and none of it is through time.
So, light travels at c. Not at all by coincidence, you'll often hear c referred to as the "speed of light in a vacuum." Really, though, it's the speed that everything travels at, and it happens to be the speed that light travels through space at because it has no mass.
edit: By the way, this also covers the common ELI5 question of why nothing can ever travel faster than light, and why things with mass cannot travel at the speed of light. Since everything moves through spacetime at c, nothing can ever exceed it (and no, traveling backwards in time would not fix that). Also, things with mass can always be "stationary" from someone's perspective (like their own), so they always have to move through time at least a little bit, meaning they can never travel through space as fast as light does. They'd have to travel through spacetime faster than c to do that, which, again, is not possible.

Had the scare of my life today. At 50 mph and in pouring rain, the car hydroplaned. Good that I played Need For Speed quite a bit, somehow I lost and gained the control of the car in a fraction of a second. What was going through my mind? Oh, is this how finally, I am going to crash the car?

Considering the wide range of expertise Nigeria has demonstrated in providing telephonic support to the banking industry in the west, I think all these jobs will eventually go there.

According to who following from close Ai technology, all the call center will be run by computer only and with a far better service at a cheapest ever. I got a guts feeling that all the cheap labor business will be disrupt in couple of years by robotics and aI technology! Good news for some and bad news for others.

We were staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii. As good as the resort is, it doesn't have too many eating options after say 9 in the night or so. We were a couple of families with 3 little kids and desperate and hungry enough to get out of Waikiki and find a place to eat. Luck may have it, a lady cab driver stopped in front of us next to Hilton and we hopped in. We didn't know what to tell her.. but I remember saying something like "Take us to a good place to eat". She drove us to Fook Yuen which is like a mile away. We were so skeptical when we saw the place from outside. It was fairly crowded and a bit noisy too. You will know what I mean if you have been to any of the "China Town" restaurants in New York City. The first time at Fook Yuen was a fun experience because the waiter didn't really seem to understand what we wanted and we couldn't figure out what he agreed upon. But, nevertheless he brought us some Chinese food which was some of the best I have ever tasted. Unbelievable quantity as well. I do think the waiter must have confused an order or two :) but what he got us was much better than probably what we ordered. We ate so much that, I have no idea how we got back to the hotel. I do remember asking the front desk at the restaurant to get us a cab. And Lobsters. You got eat them. Cost? Unbelievably low. Needless to say that we ended up going there 3 more nights. Highly recommended restaurant. The staff is extremely courteous and very generous. (I should mention the free desserts they gave us). They are open very very late in the night.

If you are living in the Waikiki area in Honolulu, everything will be a bit more expensive because it is the heart of the tourist are in Honolulu. There are not many good Desi restaurants in Waikiki. We tried another a bit away from Waikiki and that was a disaster. We tried this place for lunch and we loved it. Your call.

We were on our way to Luray Caverns and had met with a friend in Front Royal so had lunch at this place on my friend's recommendation. I am going to put my friend's exact words about the place. " It's a neat tiny restaurant owned by a young couple who met as sous chefs at the world-renowned Inn at Little Washington, which Andrew Lloyd Webber said has "probably the best food I have ever eaten"

My family and I together with my friend's family was in Waikiki and decided to find some Indian food outside Waikiki for dinner. It was around 8 PM and we were 3 small kids and 4 adults. We called the restaurant and asked them specifically whether they will be open. It seems we spoke to the owner of the place and he asked us to come in. It was a rainy day as well. We reached there and the next thing we see is that the owner guy disappears into the kitchen and this younger guy and I have no idea who he is.. tells us that they are closed. We mentioned our phone call and the fact that our cab had already left etc. (Try being in an unknown area in a city which you have no idea about with kids and family and no transportation). The younger guy says "if you want, I can give you take out". The only reason we actually travelled to the place is because it had 4 plus rating on Google. We also found that the place looked very untidy / unkempt. We waited another half an hour outside for a cab and saw this young chap walk by, calling it a night. I guess, he basically declined to serve us food because he wanted to leave. They could have told us about this and avoided us the trip. I rate this restaurant a 1* because of their lack of customer focus as well as untidy setting. For those southeast asians/Indians who would like to branch out of Waikiki to eat some Indian food, no this place is not what you are looking for. Oh, did I forget to mention that we saw them entertain locals and served them while we were waiting outside? P.S :- Next day for lunch we looked for a decent restaurant in Waikiki itself and came across a place called Monsoon India. A very nice place. No, I am not promoting them but well if you are in Honolulu and wants some good Desi food.. .. you might as well trust online reviews.

It is a great place to visit with family. Kids will have a lot of fun. If you are into minigolf try the minigolf place next door to Turtleback zoo. I believe they are under the same management. You won't be disappointed.
