It's just another dimension. As said below, moving thorugh time would require another sort of time by which we judge that we are moving.

Relative, as seen in General Relativity.

I am not sure one can "travel" in time. It implies that one might not experience 1 second for every second one experiences, which makes little sense. Unless there is a "metatime", but that doesn't seem right at all. For a more detailed explanation of what I think, see the "type one" time travel on this page I found <>. See the appendix, too.
