About Mechtraveller

This is a niche blog about geeky travel

It reflects my own interests in the mechanical, technical, historical, engineering and military world.

Most of my travelling friends & colleagues write about food & culture, and I too will cover some of those elsewhere, but here I write about factory tours, battlefield sites, technical museums, transport infrastructure, et al.

After years of guided tours taking me around cathedrals, food markets and art museums, I’m now making a determined effort to see things on my travels that actually interest me. It’s an eclectic mix but at its core are things like ships, planes & trains… not spas, shops & temples.
