Scrap the travelers checks and such silly stuff! Just bring your ATM card (make sure it has the Plus or Cirrus logo on back) and you get at market exchange rates (make sure your bank knows you will be traveling, so they don't shut it down thinking it's been stolen).
Zanzibar, India, Trans Siberian Railway, Djibouti, Myanmar, Heard Island, Newfoundland, India, Pitcairn Island, and oh, did I mention India?
I started Wanderlust in 2007 and it's been a wonderful group and amazing experience!
