Hi all. I'm Vidimian, hailing from [[Tekirdağ]] in [[Eastern Thrace|Thrace]], northwestern [[Turkey]]. I have lived all my life in Tekirdağ except for seven years between 2001 and 2008 when I resided in [[Istanbul]] (in [[Istanbul/Sultanahmet-Old City|Fatih]] for the first two years and then in [[Istanbul/Asian Side|Kadıköy]] in the next five years). I can probably provide answers for questions on these cities, as well as many other places in Turkey, but I have not declared myself a [[Wikitravel:Docents|docent]] for any of them in the fear of not being able to answer the hardest questions. :-)

Eindhoven is dominated by industrial development as the city's history is inextricably linked to electronics giant Philips, and to a lesser degree, DAF. Although those industries have mostly disappeared, they have left the city a rich industrial heritage and a lot of museums. In addition, over the past decade the city has become the so-called capital of Dutch design. (more...)

Hi all. I'm Vidimian, hailing from Tekirdağ in Thrace, northwestern Turkey. I have lived all my life in Tekirdağ except for seven years between 2001 and 2008 when I resided in Istanbul (in Fatih for the first two years and then in Kadıköy in the next five years). I can probably provide answers for questions on these cities, as well as many other places in Turkey, but I have not declared myself a docent for any of them in the fear of not being able to answer the hardest questions. :-)

One of my goals in Wikitravel is to get the article of my much beloved (and relatively little touristed) home region of Eastern Thrace up to at least guide status but that's a very looong way off.

I'm one of the administrators/janitors here. Needless to say, this doesn't give my opinions any more weight or authority than anyone else's.

You can also see me editing English and Turkish versions of Wikipedia, albeit very rarely. I'm perhaps one of the few Wikitravellers who got accustomed to using MediaWiki and wiki markup at Wikitravel first and then go on editing Wikipedia, not vice versa. I also contribute to English and Turkish versions of Hitchwiki, a wiki devoted solely to hitchhiking, but nowhere near as much as I contribute to Wikitravel although I still have some tips to add there. I also go by the username 'Vidimian' at these wikis, too.
