Hi, I'm Alastair. I’ve been a travel journalist/editor since 1989, originally in local, then national radio before moving online just before the millennium.

Mechtraveller has been running for a few years now. It reflects my own interests in the mechanical, technical, historical, engineering and military world.

There's quite a body of reviews, posts and news. And loads more to come!

Hi Alastair, thanks for sharing your blog with the Travel Massive community!

I'm a sucker for aviation and engineering museums. In recent years I visited aviation museums in Budapest, and in Moscow (who knew how many aeroplanes Tupolev invented!)

Heaven knows when that'll happen!

Hi Alastair,
Give me a shout when you decide to head our way (Russia) :-)
Would be an honour to share all the motorized history with that is on display in dozens of museums here.
