Just home from 10 days in Italy, an overnight in NYC, several long train rides, and two 9 hour flights. I did it! I just want to thank you all for the travel advice and for this board in general. Tips and helps that folks post here were on my mind and so very helpful. Overall, I had a few bouts of being very under the weather but I did everything and was able to eat well (I'll admit, I pushed it a bit). Travel is really taxing on us crohnies--will take me a bit longer to recoup. In the past, I've thought I was the only person who had to deal with finding bathrooms or trying to change the menu. But since I've been on the board, I've been encouraged and don't feel "all alone." I'm still in the midst of a flare (chiarore in Italian) but doing ok.
