Let’s grab a bite in Paris

When? Right now.

Writing prompt: When teleportation is finally possible, where will you beam yourself first?

What a wonderful idea, a transporter controlled from an app on your phone. You can go anywhere, instantly, so if someone says, Fancy some Chinese or Italian, you could actually beam over to Beijing or Rome rather can order in takeaway.

Or, at the office, you mail your colleague next door: Want to grab lunch in Paris? She mails back and says yes, sure, or sorry, I have some errands to run in Milan.

I wonder what happened to that beagle in Star Trek. Scotty tested his transwarp beaming theory (beam an object or a life-form from one planet to an adjacent one, or even to a starship travelling at warp speed) on Admiral Archer’s prize beagle. The dog was never seen again.

I trust our teleportation system will deliver us at the destination in one piece.

The first place I would beam myself is West End or Broadway. Then I would take the rest of the world.
