I'm in New Zealand in the late 1890s, but just about to set off for California to try to find my husband whom I haven't seen for about 6 years.

Hiding behind a screen in the room of the Emperor's favourite in imaginary 8thC China. I am wearing some very spiffy garments of green silk that she has given to me (I'm a man).

How curious. It's 1891 and I'm about to land in New Zealand.

Normandy, 1120.

I have just decided against sailing for England on the White Ship, and will go on the King's ship instead.

Yes :D .

Fortunately, a fair heiress was disappointed that I would not be sailing on the same ship as she, because she was in need of comfort and strength for the voyage, and as she thought I could provide both, who was I to refuse such a pretty offer? :p .
