“You’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect your home with the location of your choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of your tunnel?”
My tunnel is short and I go through it fast, even though the destination is at the other part of the world. Bahamas, Hawaii, Ibiza, Santorini, Canary islands…I don’t care.

I’m walking towards the sea. Taking off my shoes as I get closer and just walking in the cold sea without thinking. A shock. But, I don’t mind. I look at my feet and wiggle my toes a bit, just to see them falling into the sand.
I close my eyes. It’s hot. My feet are getting used to the temperature of the sea. Just few more minutes and I’m gonna be looking at the blue horizontal line dividing water and sky, swimming away….
