Blogging challenge, day 17

17 Aug

August blogging challenge, day 17: Time Travel – where would you go and why?

So many choices! I think all of which for me relate to being to actually meet historical figures or see history being made. So my top choices would be:

*Henry VIII’s court during his marriage to Katherine of Aragon and the start of his romance with Anne Boleyn – assuming I have a guarantee that I wouldn’t be tortured or beheaded.

*Scottish highlands in the mid-1700s. Have you read “Outlander” yet? Read it and you’ll know why.

*The Globe Theater in Shakespeare’s era – what did the audience (who was made up of mostly common folk) think of his plays?

*Boston in the 1760s – imagine seeing the start of the revolution. And seeing what an uphill battle it really was. And meeting John Adams.

*Vienna in the early 1800s – to meet Beethoven. Such emotion conveyed through music!

*Hollywood in the 1940s and 1950s – to meet Cary Grant, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn, Laurence Olivier, Vivian Leigh, Groucho Marx, Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Spencer Tracy, Billy Wilder, Kirk Douglas, Frank Capra, Janet Leigh, Eva Marie Saint, and so so many others.
