  • Would it be round trip or one way? Would I get to change things if I went back in time?

  • I would go back. The only reason would be to save money and be smart about it. I would probably have my own house about now. I wouldn't change anything else.

  • I'd go back to my grandparents house...when they were both alive...I miss them every day- esp. my MawMaw

  • I'd go back in time, just so I could see what it was like in ancient Rome, during the Rennaisance, during the Civil War, the Victorian Age...

    If it had to be my life, 1998. There are a few things I would seriously change about that year...

  • Past - I would go back about 1950's. I would take all of the styles and song ideas from every generation past and become a fashion and music icon.

  • I second past, to relive my childhood thanksgivings and xmas eves. today my family is scattered everywhere or passed away. and as another said, I'd go back and be smarter about saving money. but all of this ONLY if it was a round trip

  • Louise2 (and others) - it is NOT a one-way trip, you CAN come back. So I guess that also brings up the question, if you go to the past, would you change it knowing that it could completely alter the present??

    Answer by Mama_McD at 3:35 PM on Oct. 20, 2009

  • Personally, I would not go to the past, at least not MY past. I have regrets, yes, but who knws what othe rthings in my life would be changed if I change other things? Would I have ever met my husband and had my kids?? There is NO WAY I am gonna risk changing any of that! And I also believe that the challenges we face are for a reason, to make us stonger.
    That being said, I would travel to the future. At this point I think I would pick December 23, 2012, just to see if we're all still here, because if we are, then I can come back and continue planning for my future... if we're not, well then I can start living like Queen Latifah in "Last Holiday"!
