Thanks for your replies in my other two threads. I am thinking of visiting Greece in 2018, probably in October. I know that is a long time from now. Can anybody who has been to Greece recently say something about how much cigarette (or marijuana) smoke smells you encountered at various sites you visited? Do people smoke all over the place or just in some places? What about in the food stores or markets? What about in restaurants? Not that I was planning to eat much restaurant food. I read that 40% of Greek people smoke.
I went to Italy earlier this year; I did not smell smoke in the hostels I stayed at, at just one hostel, there was an outdoor patio where one or more people were smoking, but the door to the patio stayed closed most of the time. Waiting in line at the Uffizi museum, one guy right next to me in line was smoking his brains out, with no consideration for the others in line, but people didn’t say anything about me pacing away from the line. When I am outside and I see somebody smoking, if at all possible, I try to casually move a certain number of feet away while focusing on something other than the smoker. Perhaps I hate the idea of inhailing smoke and fumes more than the average person, although I will be traveling alone; if I was traveling with a group, I suppose other people in my group would be bothered my aversion to smoke if I was the only person who doesn’t like smoke and fumes; it would suck if there was smoking inside the hostels or any indoor places I visit.
I rode a small airplane at an airshow once; I wouldn’t have a problem riding in a small airplane again; I read that people smoke on ferries (commercial pasenger boats) in Greece.
