I just love the fashion (okay, there is always the possibility that it can make you look like a dump truck - but I would just ensure I was got leg extensions during my time travel back there) and it just seems to have been such a bloody fun time.
Then there was also the endless rounds of cocktail parties (not only would I turn up to this decade with drainpipes for legs, but also armed with a very fat bank account).
And then, when you're just getting sick of the heady lifestyle there was always the Wall Street Crash just round the corner to make sure you didn't have too much fun.
And that got me thinking - what era would I travel back to if I was poor? I have thought about this for a while, and I reckon I would have to been a stowaway on a boat in the late 1800s heading for Australia. At least it would have been hot when you got there.
But then, if I wanted to be a freeloader, I could just make it a whole lot easier for myself and be the unborn baby of a stowaway on a boat headed for Australia.
That's my time travel of choice, where would you go ?
