If you had a time machine to take you back to any country and any time period, where would you choose to be for your childhood, adolosent , adult life and silver years?

I would love to go back to my own childhood and learn some life skills that I couldn't then. Next, I would visit my adolescence to unlearn a few traits and undo the committed mistakes. I am living my adulthood now, in a quest to squeeze multitude ideas in minuscule minutes. Regrets are few, yet inevitable. Our choices are the chances we took. The silver years would be in this same body and form, surrounded by souls I endear to my heart.
