Yes, I would use it to go to different places around the world. However, I would not use it to take money from other people's account. I think traveling digitally would be a cheap way to travel.

Latest Review: Betrayal of Justice by Mark M. Bello

One of the most amazing things to do is to travel and to experience other cultures. The problem with it is that it is extremely expensive (and in another way time-consuming). If I was able to hop out for a quick visit to somewhere I have never been before, I would be quite frankly stupid to not take advantage of an opportunity/gift like this!

That would be an awesome ability. To travel without having to pay for gas or be stuck in traffic! Who wouldn't like that?

Of course! It's kind of like "apparating" in Harry Potter style with modern day technology. I could visit all the wonders of the world and drop by my friends' houses so easily! Such an exciting way to travel. "The only way to go!"

Definitely! I could travel to all the cool places I only dream about. Also could visit my family abroad whenever I'd like and not be constrained by ungodly matters such as money, planet tickets, off from work, etc...

The Caribbean, especially the lesser known places like Suriname, Guyana, Antigua n so forth. I'd love such a power no inhibitions.

I would be cautious of using the power, but I would definitely use it. I likely would kee it fairly secretive though, not to draw too much attention.

Why not? I guess it is too simple to actually work but it would be amazing if we could do that. There are so many places I would love to go, but traveling is rather expensive so this would be perfect (and quick). From beautiful countries in Europe to South America and Africa... I wouldn't be able to decide where to go first, to be honest.

I love traveling to go sightseeing, so if I had the power to travel digitally, I would use it every single day. I wouldn't have to pay for tickets nor suffer the discomfort to be hours in an airplane. Besides, I wouldn't even suffer of a jet lag. It would be awesome! I would love to go South Korea and Japan to try their food and wear their traditional clothes. :P

I've got mixed feelings about this ability. While it would be really cool to travel to places through a computer, I just can't help but wonder what would happen if a hacker caught you. Or if a virus decides to screw with you and swallow you whole. On the other hand, that power could come in handy, like if you feel like getting some good, Vietnamese or Chinese food, and you decide to travel to that country to get it. It'd also make learning about different cultures a bit easier.

An interesting thought! It's true that technology is a terrible master and it wouldn't be safe to be at the total mercy of the digital world. I think you'll be a great analyst, because you've thought of the risks involved as well.
