  1. “Herer du ham”: I love the Olympia Traveller de Luxe, the feel of the keys, and have no fewer than 4 of them, each slightly different from the other: cursive, elite, pica, Spanish. I also have an Olympia Monica S and an Olympia SM2 and SM9. The SM9, for my money -which is limited- is probably the finest portable typewriter ever made. Come to think of it, I’m quite an Olympian. Have fun on your Traveller de Luxe!

  2. Leo, hey just noticed my translating app says “cafe” (Italian, Spanish, English) = “kafeen” (Norwegian)? Welcome to OTP our Norwegian writer. I am somewhat of an Olympianista with and SM3 Deluxe (1958), 2 different SF Deluxes (1963 and 1958) and a Splendid 33. I tend to favor lighter portables. Olympias are by far the heavier typewriters as portables go.
