ATOTC Challenge: Where Would I Go On a Time Travel Adventure?


@rachelharrisya #flirtsquad
So if I was walking down the streets of my lovely city and I saw a gypsy wagon sitting on the side of the road, would I go in? Hell ya who wouldn't go into some cool gypsy wagon...
So if Reyna was going to send me somewhere I'm not sure exactly where I would WANT to go but if it was getting in touch of my ancestory there a couple of options. I'm pretty lucky in that my lines are not hard to trace. My mom's grandparents immigrated from Ireland and Poland, my dad's parents came here from Lithuania and so it's easy for me to know my lineage. What has always fascinated me is my Paternal Grandmothers side of the family. Even though she grew up in Lithuania she was born in Russia and a lot of my relatives were, maybe still are spread out in the area. My grandmother had to flee when she was younger. So if Reyna was going to send me back I would hope it would be to explore Russia. I've always had a fascination with it but hopefully it would be far enough back before it became so war torn.
So I could check out the cool onion domes (I have a secret obsession with them)
and drink tea from a samavor

And wear some cool clothes. This is actually an image from a Russian Lacquer Box which I used to collect. They normally depict different Fairy Tales but this one is from a Gypsy Fortune Telling Card.

So that's where I would be interested in Reyna sending me but to be honest, I can't imagine a time travel adventure not being interesting. Unless I'm in a position to that would cause me bodily harm (ya I over think these things)

So what would I hope to have in my backpack if I was able to take it with me?


In my kit I would have a camera so I could of course have pictures of everything. I'm sure that's breaking some space time continuum law. Then of course the essentials so I can at least feel clean. Maybe an ereader stocked full with a battery life of forever just in case I have down time. I hope to be experiencing everything I can instead. Toliet paper because I don't know, seem like an important thing. Then of course a journal because my mind never stops going and without modern distractions I need a place for my thoughts to go. Who knows the quality of paper and writing devices I'll find in whatever era.

Find out about Alessandra's time traveling adventure by reading Rachel Harris's A Tale of Two Centuries (like the segue way there)

A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris

Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.

One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.

With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?

  1. Russian history is pretty fascinating but there are lots of uprisings and wars you'd have to try to avoid :)
