I don't think this should be a recommended practice, because (while
you are in that country) it explicitly enables your government to
perform a traffic confirmation attack against you.

Unless you meant you did this while you were traveling, in which case
that's different.

No, I don't think it's the best way. For some providers, it may be the only way to use Tor. I think Gmail may do same thing, if try to login w/ exit node from a different country than used to sign up for the acct (not sure).

If truly concerned about attacks / profiling, using a provider that allows Tor would be better.
