I think it's quite likely that this universe is finite, but that there
is an infinity of such universes (I am not a cosmologist, though).
As for 'going to a place where it ends', you can't. Just as you can't go
to 'a place where it starts'. Try drawing an x on a ball at a place
where it ends. Or starts.
