    I wasn't alive during the 80s and 90s, and was too young to propperly enjoy the 00s, so anytime between 1980 and 2009

    First stop: Woodstock
    Second stop: Stephen Hawking party for time travelers, just to show him it is possible in the future
    Third stop: check out the solor system in different times (when Venus and Mars were like earth for example)

    Time travel (backwards) is most likely impossible. There are some crazy ideas but I doubt that anything like that would actually work/exist. Breaking chains of causality, Grandfather Paradox, Many-worlds interpretation to name a few things. Stable worm holes, exotic matter with negative mass… nah.

    That leaves time travel to the future. Future prospects are… well… not so good in my opinion. Since nobody knows what will happen in the future: How would anyone know when to stop the travel to the future? How would one know if they just left a good time period behind (and going backwards isn't possible)? Classic literature, like H.G. Well "The Time Machine" simply assumes back- and forth travel, so the time traveler can have a look at various future time periods while always having a way back. The future is not a good destination. Maybe the traveler stops right after a nuclear war. Then they have to go even more to the future hoping things will improve again.

    I hope I remember that correctly: Futurama (although allowing backwards time travel in some episodes) has one episode where the professor invented a time machine that only goes forward. They solve the problem by just having a cyclic universe and fast-forward to the next Big Bang (multiple times). Chances are this isn't possible as well as the universe will, according to the current state of knowledge, either experience the heat death (Big Freeze) or even a Big Rip. → [Wikipedia] Ultimate fate of the universe although there are other ideas as well.
    ===========

    Leaving all the problems about backwards time travel behind and simply allowing a magical time machine that goes wherever I want: probably the 1980s or 1990s. Freedom, education, less prudery, less technical possibilities for "Nineteen Eigthy-Four"-like total surveillance, overall less paranoia. Not having the risk of getting tared and feathered for deviating opinions or for making a joke poking a holes in each others peculiarities. All in all the most desirable time period for me (in western civilization).

    Going back further would certainly not be an improvement over the current situation. The World Wars, the time before/after the wars… no, thanks. Not even talking about pre-industrial society – that life surely was hard.

    I'd definitely travel to the past. There are a lot of things I'd check out first-hand.
    However, I don't like the ‘traditional’ idea of time travel. The chances of causing a paradox or changing the present at all (even by mistake) are too high. Instead, if possible, I'd like to time travel in a way that I cannot interact with anything. As if I were watching a movie in VR, for example.

    Honestly I'm fine where I am, I have no plans to mess with the future or the past as I know the smallest things can have huge consequences

    This creates a butterfly effect,This may lead to our absence,But if it doesn't produce the butterfly effect, I will go back to the World War II and stop it before it started

    So many choices and possibilities but probably late 80s early 90s to relive the rave scene properly would definitely be my first stop!

    Go back in time and return to monke

    Nah the past is mostly too boring/unsafe for me and the future is too scary so I think personally I'm fine where I am.

    Now if I could GO anywhere right now? Italy. Would be an interesting place to explore.

    investments like bitcoin work because people dont expect them to go anywhere, just see the Katowice 2014 Holos, noone thought they would reach the prices they did

    First I would go back and tell myself to invest in bitcoin.
    Then to the future, maybe 100 years into the future, to see how much the world advanced in 100 years. Then maybe 1000 years into the future. Maybe I decide I'd like to stay in the future and live there, who knows. But I would for sure have to bring back some future tech with me to the present time.
