1970 Olympia Traveller de Luxe

This is the machine that started my interest and curiosity. It is marked as an Olympia Traveller de Luxe, which I found in a charity shop in the Canary Islands. When trying to purchase a new ribbon, only an Olivetti would fit.

The jury is still out, but this Brazilian made machine would appear to be an Olivetti Tropical in disguise!

It is a lovely typewriter and I enjoy using it, although I doubt I will use it for my next book.

Any suggestions, comments regarding history welcome.

I am a writer, author and blogger living in the Canary Islands. Although I haven't used a typewriter for many years, my interest was recently kindled when I found an Olympia Traveller de Luxe lurking in a charity shop. When trying to buy a new ribbon, it seems that this machine is not all that it seems...
