Writer's Block: Choose a Power

If you could have the power to fly, be invisible, or teleport anywhere, which would you choose?
Fly.   I'd love to fly the way harriers do, not too fast, a few feet above the fields, or resting on the wind the way the turkey vultures do on a hot afternoon, lazing about the sky.  Or climbing a thermal, like the vultures and hawks, feeling the lift under my wings and watching the trees and fields get smaller below.  Or "surfing" on the waves as shearwaters do... or create my own "adventure" rides in the sky,  up and down and turning and rolling...  

Next to that, teleporting would be a great way to go places I'd like to see and can't afford the time  or money to visit.  That's assuming that the teleportation device/magic ring/whatever has solved the problem of relative motion.   Spend a very  hot afternoon in a cool Canadian (or Norwegian) forest instead?  You betcha.  Zip out to some desert having its rare year of rain and spectacular flowers?  Yup.  Get to one of those stunning places where you're supposed to leave only footprints without leaving any footprints, even?  Indeed yes. 

In fact, let's combine flying and teleporting, if we're going to daydream really cool things to do.  I teleport to X, and then I can fly around it.

Invisible has never appealed.
