    If you'd have the opportunity, would you travel back (or forward) in time?

    I've been recently wondering, what would I do if I was suddenly able to travel in time.
    I guess I'd love to travel BACK, just to relive or be able to see certain events in my life again, or be with my beloved relatives who passed away. It'd be great.
    On the other hand, I think I don't want to travel to the future, as I don't want to see what is going to happen. Neither good nor bad things. It would just mess things up in the present and there would be no surprise.

    I recently watched this movie with my husband. I would go back into time to fix all of the wrong that I have done to help have a happier life later. Plus the cool car that can fly!

    I already know what mistakes I have made in the past,  I would have to say I would go to the future.

    I would want to travel back in time.  I've made many mistakes that I regretted.  I'd like to go back in time and correct them.

    One desires is always to change the past wrongdoings so that the present will be better. Of course changing the past history will definitely affect the present and future.

    It is the lesson that I have learnt from the past that makes me what I am now. So knowing my past mistakes have made a better me. So rather than going back in time to change the past, why not learn the mistakes and move on while not committing the same mistakes again. I do believe what is past is already gone but move forward into the future from the lessons you have learnt from the past instead.

    i would like to be able to do both but if I had to choose I would go back to the pioneer days back when travel was by foot, on a horse, or in a horse and buggy rig.
    It was a challenging time and a time of new discovery. I would like to have built my home, raised all of my food, lived a simple life that left me dog tired each day. Each day was consumed by living....the cooking, cleaning, growing crops, caring for whatever animals there were, all of those things were a daily routine for the pioneer. Many times neighbors were miles and miles away. A family learned to enjoy each other's company and what they had because that was often all they had.
    There are some folks today who live in areas where they have been able to do some of these things. But there were no power tools, no electronic equipment to make the job easier.

    Human  mind itself is a plane in which we can travel in time. You can turn it to past, turn it present or to turn it future. This type traveling is good for our healthy life.
    If you  drive the mind to past time you can see where ever you done wrong. now you are so dear to think about  your beloved, but  travel in time will give you to understand that you are not that much of dear to them or you  towards them. In short such a travel give to judge the good and bad we done
    You are  hesitate to travel in future. No.. No.. You to travel. There are lot of  things to see. First you may wonder to see your olden age. The change  of your beautiful body in to an ugly one. Some time you will sorry for the huge spending you done for buying cosmetic and other beauty therapy items. You can see how your children going to look after you. This travel will help you to take some precaution if need.
    Now I think you want to travel to present also. Go for a trip

    I would travel forward in time. Specifically to the year 2100. After this period of time, there would be more catastropies for humans, which would not be worth seeing.

    I fear the past, as it there were a number of periods of cruelty, in which humanity got involved in a lot of bloodthirsty episodes.

    I think I would like to go back to simpler times...if there ever was.  What fun to see how people lived and lived weill without all the technology we now have. People sat on their front porches and chatted with neighbors. They walked places. There may have been some crime but not frighteningly so like today.  Kids ran the streets and parents didn't worry...Now really going back centuries...I think that would be fascinating.
