If you could use any sort of transportation from your dream car to a spaceship to wings, how would you travel across town or to another country?

I thought at first that a Star Trek style transporter would be the way to go, but how often am I orbiting a planet? And then there’s the whole disintegration and re-assembly thing, which, although they say it isn’t, looks as if it must be painful. Besides, how can you enjoy the scenery when you are a stream of atoms? Ridiculous.
I prefer to be out in it, where I can see at my own pace. It’s much better to enjoy your surroundings while occasionally slipping into day-dream and reverie. It’s much better to count out your steps on the ground, and to measure your progress against the landmarks while you admire them.
Nope, no fancy conveyance for me. I’m going for the seven-league-boots.
