[[User:ESko|ESko]] Hitchhiking out was really a hassle. It is easy to get a lift, but people do not understand that you need to follow the highway. They think you want to take a bus, and thus it gets complicated. In other parts of Turkey I had a recorded message by Turkish friends explaining what I was actually doing and what I needed from drivers. I didn't have it when leaving IST, and it was a mistake. Get a Turkish friend to record a message on your phone which you can play to the drivers who give you a lift. It should say something like: "I'm from XY, and right now I'm hitchhiking from IST to X. Can you take me on this road as long as possible?"
When 2 times I went hitchhiked from Istanbul to Asia I just found first big road in asian part of the city and start hitchhiking. After 4 cars and short time I was in Gebze(City 50km from Istanbul). When I was going once back to Europe . I started hitchhiking in european part after Bosphorus bridge, I took 3 cars in didn´t have any map of the city and then I finally stoped a car in direction Edirne. Hitchhiking haven´t use any bus because hitchhiking from Istanbul is very easy. There are really a lot of cars and turkish drivers will not let you wait. Enjoy crazy Turkey! If you are goning to Asia and you´re still in european part so the best spot is probably on the start of Bosphorus bridge. To get out from Istanbul you always need to take more cars(about 3-5 cars). In this city you can use hitchhiking as a public transport, just raise you´re tumb and there is a big chance that you´ll come forexample to city center faster than by metro.(Král všech moří, Semptember and October 2016/17)
