Hi All,
 
Hope everyone is ok?
 
I am getting married in March and starting to plan my honeymoon!
 
We was planning on Egypt but alot of people of told me not to go because the food will more than likely give me upset tummy and with Crohns would proberly be 100 times worse! They said alot of people get ill from the food/water out there??
 
Any other suggestions?

Not Sure about Mexico quite expensive.

I absolutely love the Greek islands and Kefalonia is stunning, as is Crete but when I went to Zante earlier this year I forgot about the plumbing systems - you have to put your used loo paper in a bin at the side of the toilet; not good if you have D!! Alternative - Malta is lovely, Corsica, Sicily, Madeira (not much beach) or have you thought about a hiring one of those boats that you can island hop around the Med? I wouldn't do Egypt either from what I've heard.
 
One other thing - don't know what you do about travel insurance - I was stung for an extra £70 for a week in Zante as I had Crohn's and surgery within last 2 years. Some companies were refusing or some quotes were up to £200. the NACC website has a list of insurers.
 
Happy planning!!!

Diagnosed aged 31 in 1996 - emergency surgery (right hemicolectomy). Thought I'd only get 'it' once and have lived in relatively blissful ignorance, apart from a couple of hospital stays for obstructions (scar tissue), until March 09....major surgery, 2 resections, fistula and now only 195cm small bowel left. Not on any meds at present except B12 injections but know there will be some. Just getting used to my 'new' body and it's limitations........ July 09 hospital stay for obstruction & tests show disease back: now on Asacol and waiting to see which treatment I'm put on

I took a trip to Puerto Rico last month and had a wonderful time. Beautiful beaches, a small rainforest, bioluminescent bays, historical tours (Old San Juan). I imagine anywhere in the Caribbean would be nice that time of year as well.

During the summer of 2006, I completed the Adacolumn Apheresis clinical trial, which helped me enjoy 2+ years of remission and more than one year med-free. During spring and summer of 2009 the symptoms slowly but surely began to return, and now I'm flaring again.
