We are having a blast celebrating the release of Heather's book, The Clearing, by time traveling. So far we've jammed with the Beatles, spent some time in ancient Greece, breezed by 14th century Tuscany, and debated if we would change history by revisiting certain historic events. Be sure to leave a comment after reading where I travel to for a chance to win Heather's book, and also a copy of my new book, The Alpha Bet. Heather is also donating 50 cents to TeenFeed for every unique comment so be sure you get yours on here! I have always been fascinated by ancient Egypt. I would love to travel back in time to see what the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids looked like in their prime. If a Delorean magically appeared in my driveway, I'd probably set it for the year 40 B.C.
(Catherine Zeta Jones as Cleopatra)
I've always been mesmorized by Cleopatra so that is whose shoes I would walk in for a few hours. I'd love to know how amazing it would feel to be worshipped by so many people and being a ruler of a country at 17. Of course she had many enemies also but her amazing charisma could charm almost anyone. While Cleopatra has been largely portrayed as a bombshell (being Caesar's mistress probably helped with this one), there are actually reports that she had quite masculine features. Any deficiency in the looks department could definitely be overlooked by her razor-sharp wit. She was the only pharoah to have learned Egyptian. And that was only one of the eight languages she knew.
I would definitely head out when the infamous basket of figs was delivered to me. While I can't say that I think much of death by snake bite, I do admire her for going out on her own terms.
What woman in history would you like to be for a few hours?
