    Smirting & The Smoking Ban

    by orlikins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Smirting is a combination of the words smoking + flirting, geddit? It started when people had to go out for a ciggie after the ban was enforced, and got chatting to fellow smokers outside on the street, eyes meeting across a cloud of blue nicotine... ;) So you may just meet a local hottie in this way!!

    REMEMBER - Since March 2004, you CANNOT smoke inside bars, cafes or restaurants, or anywhere where people are working (e.g. taxis, offices etc.)
    The legislation is officially known as the Public Health (Tobacco) Act, see link to it below for a summary.

    You may smoke in outside in the street or in designated smoking areas, but never inside a place where people are working (includes offices, bars, restaurants, shops, shopping centres, taxis, etc)

    1950s Revisited

    by sjm30741 Written Nov 3, 2003

    There are two things that were very noticable and unexpected during this visit:
    1. Every place we went has stairways, especially the private homes- steep stairways! Get in shape before you go! And you have to be prepared to help young children if you have them with you: we caught Abbie mid-tumble down the stairs at the B&B.
    2. Nowhere during the entire visit- homes or businesses- had a toilet that worked as efficiently as we're accustomed to in the USA. This was quite awkward on more than one occasion.
    Every place we went also was heated by radiators in the rooms- something that most of us in the USA find unfamiliar now. This actually didn't present any problems, and the rooms were nicely warm & comfortable. It was just an unexpected finding.

    HOLY WATER?

    I don't want to offend anybody but we found this little well bit funny! I don't know if the locals believe that its water is really holy.
