As a Turk i don't drive in İstanbul. Cause it's too crowded. And everybody hurry for something. In general better use main roads not small city streets roads.

Great video. Driving in Istanbul is a nightmare. I'm an overlander too, currently living in Istanbul because of this virus. Good to see it from your perspective. :D

Which district of Istanbul are you in? Switch to the Anatolian side, it is calmer. At the moment, so many people shouldn't be out. God, it's too crowded. Take care :)


Edit: As far as I watched, this video was shot before the virus outbreak, so I'm guessing that not so many people are out there right now.

OMG, for the TTG Drinking Game you should have started the video by saying "lovely" and "actually" 10 times each. Watching Marianne navigate through the traffic was stressful!! Marianne handled the traffic like a boss, so impressed!


BTW, I love the way Chris adds "love" to the end of every comment or suggestion for Marianne. That is next level husband skills, I took notes. :)

Hello. Here from Sarah and Luca’s video... I am looking forward to getting to Istanbul one day. I have heard so many wonderful things about it. You are super fortunate to get that lockdown spot. Take care!

As an Istanbulite, sometimes I get lost on the roads and I go crazy because of the crowd. Some districts, especially in the European region, are very crowded and the roads are narrow. But it should not be strange because the population of Istanbul is huge. For this reason, I congratulate your wife. She has very good stress management and courage. Also thank you for this nice video. Have a good trip!
