    It depends, are we discussing Time Travel in the sense that we cannot change anything because it is our past and we know what happens, or can we step on a butterfly in the past and the next thing is Germany wins WW2, Abolition never took place and the present is a smurfing mess?

    Because if it can't be changed then you'd want to go to the future even though going back in time to observe events would be "fun" it would not provide you any immediate advantages. As if you went to the future you could simply look up what companies and stocks to invest in and because it is "written" on return to the present (which btw is also guaranteed safely because you stipulate you return home safely in the question) you would have already invested in these stocks in the future since it could not be changed which means you can massively profit from it. Cue becoming very rich. Anyone who says money can't buy happiness clearly has not been truly poor. It may not buy the happiness of love and affection, but it is more comfortable to be lonely in a mansion than lonely in a rented single room in a flat.

    If it can be changed then you have a difficult choice because the direction of travel can have interesting and amazing results on the present. Also going forwards would no longer guarantee you would be successful as your mere presence in the future could change the outcomes of the stock market etc that said going backwards could be just as disastrous though, admittedly you could go back and have some real fun doing trout that you always wanted to do - like Killing Hitler, or kicking the trout out of the kids who bullied you in school, or steering events to lead past you to the missed opportunities you had. Some of these options would undoubtedly improve your current day situation and by going back to the past you can always attempt to undo some of the bad effects.

    As awesome as going to the past would be to witness a Spinosaurus leering at me, I'd have to say the future. Maybe we somehow survive nuclear annihilation, pandemics, and armageddon, and evolve to fly in millions of years. Also, interstellar travel.
