English Friday challenge from the Blog English Club today is my wildest dream.
As a history nerd my wildest dream is to time travel. Unlike the main character in H.G. Wells’ book; The Time Machine who time travels forward to the future, I would really love to go back to the past.
I often picture myself bouncing back to different periods in the history:
Before you get bored, I’d better stop mentioning the eras here.
Migration and culture
Migration is as old as the history itself some people say. Tribes have always been mobile from the very beginning. With time travel I would love to see how tribes move from one place to another, bringing their own customs, traditions and language. Then they mix them with those of the locals. This merged culture and language has resulted in what we know today.
And I am eager to witness how the food was. What did people eat at that time? How did they prepare the food? Mind you, in the Golden Age, spices were more expensive than gold!
What I would do
Writing this I get very excited in a nerdy way. Imagine if time travel would be possible. I would pack my bag, a paper notebook and a small pocket camera with lots of 1 TB memory cards. I am aware that bringing DSLR would not be a good idea so I should carry a small camera.
Man, I would blend effortlessly with the people, wearing the same clothes and speaking the language like they do. I would talk to people endlessly and take countless picture of them, discreetly.
After time travelling to a certain period of time I would go back to here and now. I would write a book with daily life stories of ordinary people.
What would you do if you are to time travel, go back to the past or take a leap to the future?
