Q1. Time Travel
This is a tough one for me, as I’ve always wanted to time travel to SO MANY places! It’s the curse of being a history buff. In the 20th century — the 1940s and 1960s in either Europe or the U.S. (why not both!). Pre-20th century — Roman rule Scotland to go hang out with my Celtic ancestors. Tudor England, especially during Elizabeth’s reign! Due to Outlander I really want to go to Scotland during the 1800s. OH! And to be in the colonies during the American Revolution.
That’s my Western answer. Non-Western time travel includes Baghdad during it’s golden age. Jerusalem during the Second Temple and again during the early years of Christianity, such as when the Nag Hammadi texts were written. India during The Buddha.
Umm – I’m sure I’ve forgotten something. My one stipulation is that I could successfully disguise myself as a man to be “safer” and more able to travel easily.
Q2. Fictional Place
Obviously Hogwarts!! End of story!
Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, post-apocalyptic Chicago of Divergent, Panem, the other dystopic universe of Jasper Fforde’s Shades of Grey.
