What tense is this?!
Si yo pudieras viajar,¿adonde irias y por que?
What tense is pudieras and why? I thought it should be conditional, but poder is podria, podrias, etc.
Please help. Thanks in advance.
We do have a lesson that deals with this exact topic.
The if clause uses the past perfect subjunctive and the main clause uses the indicative, conditional tense.

I did that too, but I have no idea why. I haven't even learned that.

Looking it up on this sites dictionary I came up with this "pudieras" is the second person singular preterit subjunctive of the verb poder. I hope this helps you.
