      In a practical sense, I think Mars is the best bet… it is pretty close to get there from earth (in astronomy terms)- the only problem is that you would have to be in a space suit all the time. If I could teleport any where, it might be cool to live on a planet like earth, but in a “binary star system” so you would have two Suns. I imagine it would be nice and sunny most of the time- but I am probably saying that because I live in Ireland…

      It’s not actually a planet, but I think Titan, a giant moon of Saturn, is a fascinating place. It has a thick (but toxic) atmosphere and all sorts of scenery including sand dunes, mountains, craters and volcanos. ost amazing of all, Titan has rain, rivers and lakes (of liquid methane and ethane). It is chilly though, about -180 deg C.
