If I could go back in time, I'd love to go back to...

As a lover of history, this is a difficult one! Everywhere! Anytime!
Uh...but I have to choose only one, right?


Regency England. England in the early 19th Century. But only if I could be rich--a duchess or a princess, perhaps. At the very least, a countess! (This is my fantasy, right!?) Then I'd get to dance and hold intellectual conversations with men like Mr. Darcy and ladies like Jane Austen, or perhaps Mary Wollstonecraft. I could explore England in its heyday, ride in a carriage down cobbled streets, or maybe sidesaddle on a spirited chestnut along Rotten Row. I could visit the theatre--an opera, or maybe a comedy...and if it was bad, I could throw cabbage at the actors (would I ever do that? Noooo, not me! ). Maybe I'd find that Mr. Darcy and, much to our parents' chagrin, we could elope to Gretna Green.

ahhh that sounds wonderful. Proper England in a time of ladies and manners.

I want a Mr Darcy too.
