    I just finished watching the Time Travelers wife again and although the character in this film couldn't really choose where he was going, I think it would be cool if we could travel back in time and talk to like Einstien for instance or anyone that was life changing in history and ask them questions etc... Or even on a more personal note to meet my Grandmother who died before I was born or any number of family members that I was to young to know before they passed. Anyway look forward to hearing where you would travel in time if you could smile

      I'd like to see the dinosaurs.  That would be cool.

    Always loved the American West in about 1880s. Gun slinging cowboys, frontier mentality, not sure what that says about me!

    I would have loved to be a journalist in the south, starting with the Civil War. If I couldn't have the war, then I would take the Civil Rights era.
    I think I would have also liked the 20s prior to the Depression and the old west.

    I would love to go back and visit my ancestors. Even just as far back as 1914, because I have a diary from back then written by all my aunts and uncles, and my great gran who wrote poetry and funny stories in it. Just to meet them would be great.

    Take a look at my Hub, The Enigma of Kersey Village.  In it, a friend of mine says that he and a mate did travel in time - back in time 1492.  The reports he and his friend made about the incident created quite a stir.

    I would travel back to a time to when Squirrels were not aroused by the size and shape of your pumpkin, or inclined to climb to the 4th story apartments, in the hope that your pumpkin would oblige a squirrel's devious intentions!  lol

    To many places I would like to go back in time too.  Two of them are: to see how the Maya collapsed and to see how earth was created.

        I'd like to go back to the early 60s in the US. I was alive then and living in Scotland but I would like to be there as an adult. There seemed to be so much hope for the future then...even though there were some serious things going on.

    Well, AFAIK, people of African descent would not want to travel too far back in time (slavery times) unless it is 500 years+. (or 35 yrs ago)
    Nor would Mexicans living in what was Mexico, now the U.S. unless it is 250 years+ ?? or 50 years. Yeah, America had some positive changes happening back then. A lot of nice everything.

    Additionally in a positive light, the quality of food, air, and character of people would've been better. Funny, how nobody wants to travel into the future seeing how things are becoming overpopulated, cost of living, genetically modified foods, and the digital age overtaking face-to-face meetings. I would do the future thing though. 100 years for a test ride.

      So Many Paths: What time would you like to go back to if you could? Who would you like to meet in history that is no longer alive? Like: Einstien, your great ,great, grandparent......etc...etc..???

    I would like to go back in the 18th Century and would love to meet my ancestors. I would like to know then, what life it was where the Philippines was under Spaniards.

    If it's a one-time permanent thing, I would travel back to the Sixties.  I would be young again and the music was fabulous; it was an exciting time with endless possibilities.  If I had the option to travel on a temporary basis and leave when things got hot, then I would like to travel back to when Ezekiel saw the wheels of fire come down from the heavens so that I could see that first-hand.  Then I would like to travel into the distant future to see what is in store for the earth and its creatures.
