If I could travel in time ....

Today’s blog prompt: If you could travel in time for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?

I am a day late with number two of Shimelle's blog prompts. The answer was a simple one .... I just ran out of time .... ironic huh???

Anyway .....

If I could travel in time for just one day I would go back to the day in 1903 when the Wright brother's finally realised their vision of powered human flight.

"It was Wilbur's abiding dream of building a full-size flying machine that inspired their work. Apparently he once said, he had been "afflicted with the belief that flight is possible." The reality of that obsession was a lonely quest for the brothers in the workroom behind their bike shop, plotting to defy gravity and conquer the wind. Yet that obsessive kind of world-changing belief is a force that drives you to solve a problem, to find the breakthrough--a force that drives you to bet everything on a fragile wing or a new idea. It was a force that led the Wright brothers to invent, single-handedly, each of the technologies they needed to pursue their dream."

"A pair of self taught engineers working in a bicycle shop, they made the world a forever smaller place."

-Bill Gates

I would never have thought of going back in time to see that but if you ever get the chance, give me a call cos I would love to see it too!! :O)) If I could go back in time, it would be to the court of Henry VIII, mind you, knowing how daft I am I would probably end up on the block LOL
