Would you want to visit your past or your future? Hang out with your mom when she was young or when she met your dad? Would you rather see biblical times firsthand or glimpse another time period? Let your daydreams do the talking and fill us in on your most fun time-travel fantasies!

Tell us your choices in this week’s polls and then fill us in more in the comments below!

    40’s was the best decade, hands down. When I think ‘classic’ or ‘classy’ the 40’s always comes to mind

    I’d probably want to go back to a couple months ago at school and re live or see things differently there.

    Honestly, I’d like to visit England in the Middle Ages.
    I’ve read “A Confederate Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” and many other stories which take place in the time of King Arthur. I think it would be awesome to meet those famous people. I don’t if I’d want to be a serf, a live as the masses did, or be a noble and live in a little more comfortable setting.
    Or I might visit the time period of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”

    I wish I could go back in time and talk to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and tell him how much people love Sherlock Holmes and thank him for writing awesome stories about him even when he didn’t really want to.

    I want to go back to the Garden of Eden and try to keep Eve from sinning. Another place I would love to go would be Victorian England. I would go see my past, hang out with old friends, do fun things I can’t do anymore. I don’t want to know my future. That would be too weird.

    Love to visit 1800 England, regency times, when England was at peace with France and everyone was trying new dances and foods 😀

    I would go to England’s countryside in the 40s. I’ve always wanted to go back to the forties!

    I would love to travel back in time to the 1800s and meet the Ingalls and Wilders and see what Laura Ingalls Wilder was really like.

    Austria, 1939…

      really? That was the height of World War 2 when the Natzis were taking over and taking people captive- it was incredibly dangerous at that time, entire cities were getting bombed, destroyed from the ground up. I’m just curious why you would choose this time and place?

        I love reading all the comments, this was so fun! 🙂

      There’s so many places I’d love to go! It’s so hard to choose, but I had only one option it would be to meet Jesus.

    I put 60s but id love to visit the 50s! I know it was God’s plan for me to be born in 2000 but I wish I was born in a little bit more simpler time!

    I would either go back to the late 1790’s, to meet Jane Austen while she was working on First Impressions and then Elinor and Marianne, or else I would go to the 1930’s so I could eavesdrop on meetings of the Inklings in The Eagle and Child, and even talk to C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

    Since I like history, I’d travel to World War 2 in Europe. I’d be a spy and I’d work to get all the people out of the death camps. 🙂

    Um… I’ve always wanted to see Jesus feed the 5,000. I would have loved to meet my Aunt Elin, see the 50’s and hanging out in the 20’s would be awesome. Seeing what I’m going to be like in the future would be AMAZING and seeing what I was like in the past would be AWESOME!

    A time machine would leave you in the same place you started, albeit a different time. Getting where you wanted to go from there would be extremely inconvienient. What you really need is a TARDIS.
