If I found out I had the ability to travel anywhere in the world I would use it to travel all the places on my bucket list. Traveling is far too expensive and takes far too long to travel vast distances. Places I would have to travel to would be Australia, Japan, Barcelona, just places with exotic foods or places that won't exist anymore due to raising water levels and crumbling foundations. The only thing that would be needed is a language translator.

I think that I would, but it would probably be rather frightening. On one hand, you can travel anywhere. On the other, you can probably also accidentally end up in horrible places due to a person's digital connection.

I would use it. My first trip would be Disney World. I'd love to drop into the behind the scenes areas, but anywhere is fine. After that, who knows? I'm not technologically mindful enough to figure it out, but I'd love to see if there's a way to travel the universe with this power. There's so much to see out there. I'm sure.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

While I am unaware of any kind of long-term side effects, I would definitely enjoy being able to travel anywhere in the world. With his access to bank accounts, I would also be able to divert funds to live in peace on a desert island in the Caribbean.

I think that I would want to travel, but I'm not sure that I would travel to the extent that Alex travelled. If I had these abilities, I would only travel when I felt a "wanderlust" come over me. I think I would probably travel to Vienna, Austria, because it is one of my favorite places in the world and I enjoy going back again and again.

Yes. Considering I can't drive and it would save me money on gas and a car bills, it would be plausible for me. The only thing I would be scared of is being stuck in the internet. But yeah I like that the book made it seem like an instant mode of travel.

:D of course, I wouldn't miss this opportunity for anything. First I will use it to travel to Canada for I have always wanted to be there, travel to China to the coloured mountains and then explore the world and beyond :D

Damn yes I would :) There are so many places I want to visit and not enough money to visit even just one. I’d embrace maybe superpowers and travel from one place to the next like there’s no tomorrow!

I would love to travel without planes, trains, or automobile. The only downside would be not being able to take anything with you except the clothes on your back and what fits in your pockets.

If I had the same ability as Alex Fine, I would use it to travel the world and see a lot of cool places, but I wouldn't use it to steal money from Russian oligarchs or anything exciting and dangerous like that. I would simply travel, enjoy myself, try new things, and meet new people.

I think I would be really nervous to travel like that, but I think I would do it. I have family in Germany I'd go visit. And go and see other family in Oregon. But then I would also travel to places I've always been fascinated with, such as Hawaii, Ireland, Scotland, and Australia.

Um... yes? I hope I would be more cautious than Alex, but come on, it is a too cool ability not to try. I would visit every place I want to on this planet, although I would restrain myself from touching the secrets I know I couldn't handle.
