I found this thread surprising. Very little actual advice given.

Doesn’t it seem like the opposite should be true? Like if I walk around at sub-10% body fat and 4000kcal is maintenance I could goof around for a week or two and not worry much, whereas if I’m 20% body fat, and only need 2500 calories, I’m much more likely to set myself back by indulging for a week or two?
I don’t eat any very different when on vacation. Europe is big on bread, I still pass. If everyone else at the table is like “This is the best bread ever”, I’ll have a piece. Of course, that’s a different kind of vacation than going on a cruise, where the majority of the people are there to gorge at the buffet, and maintain a buzz the entire trip.
My advice (finally, after my little rant): grocery stores are great. If you’re going somewhere foreign, they’ll still have all that interesting foreign stuff, but ingredients and portion controls are much more managable.
