SS Blog Challenge # 31....if you couldn't live in current times, which past era would you like to have been born into?

If I could choose what period of time I was born I would choose Australia when it was being settled.

I'm an Australian history fanatic as well as a scrapbooking and card-making fanatic.

My favourite period of our history is from 1788-1828 which is the first 30 years of our beautiful country.

Times were very tough, mostly n0-gooders were sent here from England. Many of them had no idea how to farm, build, survive so turned to theft and prostitution which is why some of them were sent here in the first place. They weren't given much in the way of tools and equipment or seeds and animals to provide food as well.

I'd still love to live in that time though. There were new things happening everyday and it would have been great to have been a part of it.
