This is one of the very first Traveller typewriters. I saw it at a shop in Newport, Wales, and then the writing was on the wall. Carrying it on my backpack all day long and then carrying it back to Spain was quite a nuisance, but it was well worth the effort.

It is in pristine condition, except for the case which is quite deteriorated. It has been unused for quite a lot of years, but the ribbon still had something to say.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
