What's the general thinking on compromise whilst abroad? I'm on my way back from running in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan, and when you're staying with some of the poorest people on the planet, and all they can offer you for breakfast is two small boiled eggs and a bit of dry bread, and you won't eat again for 12hrs, you take it.
Point is, i knew where I was going and that I'd likely have to compromise for necessity. I'm in Tajikistan now and can eat vegan again (though it's pretty dreadful). What's th done thing in vegan circles - is compromise derided even when there are health risks, do you just choose holidays advisedly or what?
Well, I don't really travel, but I've thought about that before; I suspect if there really was a chance of offending people offering hospitality, I'd go lacto-ovo vegetarian for the occasion, but I wouldn't eat meat. I don't expect that I'll ever be in this situation, though.
(The main limitation for me is that I can't stand it when I'm somewhere where I don't speak the language, and so will always seek to limit my travelling to places where I do, and it's unlikely that I wouldn't be able to make my veganism clear. As I said above, I don't really travel, though, anyway.)
