Is being able to understand the common language of your destination part of the premise?
Then most travels might end up in futility, right? Still, winessing the viking-native-contact in north-america, would be interesting. I´d make a series -deadwood style- about it afterwards. But i guess, that will come anyways, soon...
Since my only languages is Swedish, English and some German, I wouldn't really understand a thing through most of history. So there's really no point seeing most grand sermons, speeches etc and I figure that I would be sincerely disappointed by how most historical persons really look in real life as well. So I would want to see some massive spectacles of human violence like the battle of Lepanto, Actium, the charge of the cavalry at the siege of Vienna and Cannae even though it would undoubtetly screw me over in the long run, another thing I would want to see would be seven wonders of the world newly built, the city of Rome during the Empire and ancient Athens.
