I'd choose one of my smallest (like a Skyriter since I do not have a Hermes Baby or Kolibri) then put it in my back pack or if I have a bigger one in my suitcase with rollers.

Looks like you have a serious pile there. Whatcha got? Going by train?

Let me guess - Groma Kolibri and Corona 3?

Thanks for your comments!
Adwoa, correct, these are the Kolibri/Neckermann Brillant Junior and the Corona 3. Also, there are a postcard printer and a notebook somewhere deeper down. ;)
Scott, indeed, I traveled by train. I don't know if that load would be accepted at an airport - it was excessively heavy!
Bill, at the Swiss Type-In in Berne last year, I actually carried my new Hermes 3000 in my backpack for an entire afternoon - It worked, but the already damaged zipper of the backpack had to be replaced afterwards.
Michael, as I traveled by train, I didn't encounter any security checks - but Peter's Tippa was damaged when he flew back to the U.S. - probably at the security check.

I have yet to try this. I obviously need a flat typewriter. So sad that the Groma machines have gotten so expensive in the US.
