Here is a collection of my writing about, and photographs of, some trips that I have made, usually with Ayşe. These may be trips to conferences; they may be trips to demonstrations; they may be purely pleasure trips. Now that we live in Istanbul (as of August 2011), the trips may be within this city.
The links below or on the next page are arranged by year:
See also the tourism category of my blog, particularly for later trips.
There are some broader divisions, according to the development of my ideas and technical abilities:
The earlier articles are without photos. Some articles started out as emails. Most articles are formatted with html; exceptions, as those typeset by the TeX program, are noted.
With the account of the 2004 trip to Italy, I started adding links to websites that had photos of the places we had visited.
With the account of the trip to France later that year, I started borrowing those photos and adding them to my own pages.
For the 2007 trip to Fethiye, thanks to my father-in-law, we finally had our own camera: so most of the photos in the account of that and later trips are by me and Ayşe.
For activities between September, 2009, and September, 2011, on Facebook I put some photo albums and notes, to which I have tried to provide links here.
Between September, 2011, and September, 2015, there are links to some Google photo albums. These were originally Google+ albums, but links to Google+ no longer work. Apparently the albums themselves still exist within Google, but with new links (which I may have provided here).
For July, 2012, there is a link to a Dropbox photo album.
Starting in May, 2013, there are links to my blog.
Not every trip since the start of this collection is covered on any medium.
I also made a page specifically for Şirince visits.
