Maldives. I would have to say, at times I imagine myself relaxing on the beach, a softly whispering breeze passing by, the sun shining on my back, digging my feet into the sand. But after a minute or so, I come back to reality, open my eyes and see a textbook in front of me. Sigh, I wish I were there right now.

I've always been curious about the moon, so if I could be teleported anywhere, I would go there. I can't go by spaceship as I am not an astronaut. I can go anywhere on earth, by aeroplane. But there's definitely no chance for me to go to the moon except by teleportation.

I would go to Windermere, the largest natural lake in England. It has long been my dream to enjoy the natural view while walking along the path there during a lazy evening or drinking a cup of tea in the outdoor cafe. All troubles and worries would not exist any more.

Iwould go to the Antarctic to see the magnificent wildlife and beautiful landscape, especially the marvellous Southern Lights and penguins. It would be a valuable experience to appreciate how fragile and endangered the ecosystem is now by seeing the mostly unspoiled and most delicate environment in the world.

Anywhere? Heaven then. Some people might say: 'Are you crazy? You want to die? What is wrong with you?' Whatever they might say, I still really want to be transported to heaven, for heaven is a place where peace and happiness truly are. A completely perfect place! No tears, no war, no jealousy, but filled with love.

If I could be teleported anywhere, I would probably go to Qinghai now. The death toll is expected to keep rising. Materials like tents and quilts are still on their way to the region. The rescue workers are still using their bare hands to search for people under the rubble of toppled homes and schools. I would take something to help the rescue workers.

I would go to the Arctic, as it is the northernmost area in the world, and may disappear in the future due to global warming. I want to watch the melting of ice - caused by increasing global temperature. I want to see rare animals like polar bears, walruses and arctic foxes. Lastly, I want to meet the Inuit and the Nordics. I want to know about their cultures, traditions and lifestyles.
