It's entirely possible they blocked it because they consider foreign charges "suspicious." CALL THEM. One of my credit cards does this all the time. A quick call or email (through secure messaging on their site) to let them know I AM, in fact, in X country has opened it up again immediately.

It is always a good idea to let all of the banks who you have cards through that you are traveling. You can let them know the length of your trip as well. I had my debit card blocked when I was up in Illinois for the summer. Took them till the end to finally block it but a quick call got it fixed in a couple of hours. Now I always call when I travel long distances.
