This week’s Indie Travel Challenge prompt asks if you could go back in time, where and when would you go? This is a cool prompt because I find the concept of time travel really fascinating. I love watching Doctor Who and reading time travel romance novels, among other things. There’s a few places I would be interested in going to. First, I’m really curious about the dinosaurs, so I would go back to the Jurassic period (anywhere really) to look at some dinosaurs.
I just finished reading Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford, which Jeff reviewed before. I would be really interested to go to Mongolia or China or the cities of Central Asia at the height of the Mongol empire, and see what it was like. It seems fascinating.
Finally, as a Classical Civilization major, I would absolutely love to go see ancient Greece and Rome at the height of their glory. I want to know if the things I’ve studied were accurate! And they’re both just such interesting places.
I’d need to make sure, of course, that I didn’t interfere with anything and then create a paradox or change history. I’m totally ready to go on these trips, though. Who’s got a time machine?
Where would you go if you could go back in time?
