Traveling to Southeast Asia with a PA
I'll be traveling in South-East Asia for 2.5 months and I have a peanut allergy. I am anaphylactic, however I can be around peanuts and if the person beside me is eating peanuts, I will be fine so I am relatively lucky.
I was curious if anybody had any tips on how to travel around countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos with a peanut allergy that is a less drastic measure than sticking to fast food restaurants, as I would like to enjoy some of the local cuisine if possible and avoid KFC and McDonalds.
The only precaution I have come up with so far is to have a laminated card to show to food vendors that says 'If i eat peanuts I will die, Is there peanuts in this dish?" in the language of each country I plan to visit.
If anybody has any tips or relevant personal experiences than please let me know as any help would be appreciated,
