In brief: Yes
You can definitely travel with gout.
You should, however, take your medications if you have a flare-up to avoid further complications.

In brief: Yes
There should be no limitation on travel if you have gout.
You should follow a diet to decrease the chance of gout attacks. Diet includes increased fiber, avoid alcohol, meat, cheese, and increase water intake. Weight loss also helps.
