I am very sensitive to smoke and was not affected by it too much while on tour (I did the Euro Vista tour last year). We did have smokers on my tour, but smoking is not allowed on the coach and as long as your roommate doesn’t smoke (or is considerate), there won’t be any smoking in your room either. We spent quite a bit of time outdoors where the smoke doesn’t bother me as much and I don’t recall people smoking inside of churches or museums. I actually get sick (allergies and asthma) if I am exposed to too much smoke and I was fine on my tour so you shouldn’t have to worry about it too much <!--graemlin::)-->
Hope that helps!
My Spain & Portugal trip was freaky … 40 ppl and no one smoked !!!
Thanks for the responses!
I have been to Europe before, but only Western Europe and I was only 14 so I didn’t go to the bars or anything. I was just thinking about that the other day so I thought i’d ask. Also I thought Russia might be a bit worse, and then I’m hoping to go around Eastern Europe a bit.
From 1st July you’re not allowed to smoke in pubs/ clubs in England anymore. So from July no smelly clothes after going out in England <!--graemlin::)-->.
In the rest of Europe smoking in club/pub is still allowed i think.
though you can’t smoke in public places like museums etc .
Taking febreeze sounds like a good idea..
I am a non smoker and I am VERY sensitive to smoke.
So smoking in pub is not allowing in England from 1 July 2007. Does this apply to all pubs and clubs? What are the situations like at rest of the Europe, is smoking still allowed? Are they really smoky?
In some hotel room (especially the carpet ones), if someone stay there before you smokes in the room, it leave a very strong smell. What will be a good produce to use to get rid the smoke smells?
Thanks in advance.
Im a smoker and very considerate of people around me. If I want a smoke I will move away from others (a bit unsociable in that sense but you get let filthy stares) – as for clubs etc western europe like it or not EVERYONE smokes! They dont care if you have sensitive skin, or asthma. Majority of people smoke at restaurants when others are trying to eat (not me)!
If you share a room with someone that smokes Im pretty sure they will have the decency to step outside…if not kindly ask them not to smoke in the room.
I am a smoker and also somewhat considerate and will move away if need be however also like it that if I am considerate about moving away or outside when smoking that non-smokers are considerate back and dont winge about smoking too much
you should give up smoking for your trip because you would save more cash . that you can speand on food and beer
