My wife and I have been long overdue for a vacation. We finally had a window, saw some great deals on flights and hotels and got on a plane just 36 hours after booking. Our destination? Paris. It’s a beacon of culture and civilization, and has played a special role throughout the course of our relationship.
I had planned on bringing my 1956 Olivetti Lettera 22 to catch up on some writing, but it was too big for my laptop bag. I spent the first couple of days casually looking for a typewriter I could either rent or buy for use during the trip.
On that note, cue my first report…
It’s in excellent working condition, although I need a replacement plastic handle for the outer case. If you have one, or know someone who does, please let me know!
