If you had a time machine, what year would you go back to and why? To the Italian Renaissance so I could drink wine, watch the artists work and buy up a lot of inexpensive property in the Italian countryside.

If you could go on a road trip with anyone (dead or alive), who would you go with and where would you go?  I would take my son and husband across the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth II, travel by rail through Europe, then hop on over to spend the night with the Bedouins in Wadi Rum, Jordan.
