Does anyone know anything that could help us on holiday?

Hi,
I’m a (near) vegan in a family of omnivores. We usually go on at least one holiday abroad every year. At the moment, we’re in Lanzarote (a Spanish island that is one of the Canary Islands). We’re going to Croatia later in the year.
My family can get quite cross about having to provide for me when we go out to restaurants abroad. My mum thinks that it can be very hard.
We’re out at an Italian-style restaurant in Lanzarote at the moment. My mum got a bit exasperated (if that is the word) when I brought up that the fresh pasta on the menu might have egg in it (I have had spaghetti napolitana here before). Would wholewheat fresh pasta (including spaghetti) have egg in it?
I have/had/have heard of the Happy Cow app. I also, possibly, have the Google Translate app, in which you can use a camera to translate a Spanish ingredients list into English.
This is one reason why I’m not too keen on Spanish countries for holidays (that and the animal cruelty, bullfighting and stray issues). Can anyone offer any help please?
Thanks.
Have a great day (and/or night)!
