When Peter came to town

Peter tries out the Rooy.

A storm brews over our type-in at the park.

The view down to the lake from  our picnic spot. There weren't very many others in the park.

 
Peter tries out his Triumph Tippa. 

 My typecast on the spot. We didn't take along the Galaxie because I was sure Peter had had enough of typing on it for a while!

Perfect picnic-sized portables. 

Oh, well, I suppose I should put up a picture of myself as well. More on Peter's blog, including me blending remarkably well into my couch!

  1. This is just great, Adwoa! I love reading about the same event from two angles. It's so good to see that Peter managed to soak-in (pun intended!) with you guys in Zurich and Geneva. And that is one inter-continental typewriter swap you did! How nice of Peter to hand-carry the Galaxie; you're equally generous to host him and present a Tippa. As I mentioned to Florian, I might fly to the Netherlands next year for a conference; will try my darndest to do a Swiss side-trip.

    I've seen that cursive typeface in one of Peter's old posts, it's spectacular!

  3. A great skirt! (Yes, I can add comments now!!)

    Good job you didn't have my IKEA couch, which is a very dull brown...

  4. Fantastic! That Galaxie really experienced quite a journey. Oh, and feel free to tell me if you grow tired of that Scritp typeface... ;)

  5. That's a very cool cursive typeface. It has a fun, happy swirl to it, and it's very casual and natural-looking. I was amazed just to see cursive typefaces existed in the first place (which is why I searched for one as well), but that one is the most unique I've yet seen.

  6. It's nice to see you two typing together. And what a nice typeface on this Galaxie! Bon voyage Peter, and see you soon Adwoa! Peter made the Swiss typosphere a very busy place these last 10 days, it's thanks to his great planning that we all had our meetings - definitely a great tour de Suisse!

  7. I had a great time with all the Swiss Typosphere! The trip is highly recommended for typewriter enthusiasts. This was a nice park too, we got a few drops of rain while we ate but it stopped for the typing.

  8. Oh hey! Great photos. I love it when I can put faces to people I've seen writing on here. I try to imagine them, often not guessing even close to correct.

  9. Seems everyone has been having a great time. It is good to see typing in the park. It seems such a relaxing and inspiring place to type. Congratulations on the Galaxie, They are nice machines. I still I do not know if I want to get a machine with the same script typeface. I have my thoughts on one.

  10. Wow, that's a great cursive typeface, I love it when the ink makes the letters so dark that you can see the texture of the ribbon :-)

  11. Sounds like a bunch of fun get togethers. Now I can't wait for Peter to get back in the states so I can have my Words with Friends buddy back:)

  12. It's always wonderful to read about these type-ins -- a chance for folks in the Typosphere, sometimes far-flung on every side of the globe, to actually MEET in person!

  13. What a beautiful spot for a type-in! Very nice report and photos. I've been thoroughly enjoying playing along at home.
