About Mechtraveller

This is a niche blog about geeky travel, attractions, history and transport

It reflects my own interests in the mechanical, technical, historical, engineering and military world. So I write about factory tours, battlefield sites, technical museums, armed forces museums, military history, transport infrastructure, et al.

After decades of guided press tours taking me around standard attractions, I’m now making a determined effort to see things on my travels that really interest me, and I hope, you. It’s an eclectic mix but at its core are things like ships, planes & trains. In short, I’m interested in places where stuff happened and places that curate it.

Mechtraveler is a classic niche blog. By definition it has a small but tightly targeted audience.  I’ll happily talk about direct advertising and solo or group (Captivate) campaigns. See my ‘live’ stats and media pack.
