There were many Linda's, after the 1947 record Buddy Clark made, called Linda, came out.

Yes - there are banks almost everywhere and furthermore most ATMs worldwide will accept YOUR personal ATM card and all you need to know is your PIN number.

However, you do have to be clear about what currency you want. If you are in the Caribbean you might get Caribbean dollars (depending on which island you are visiting, which may not do you much good).

Sometimes it is better just to pay by credit card. Then you also have some protection if the purchase goes bad, like if you get rooked on fake tanzanite or something.

Chances are you are not going to be back at the island soon, and they count on that.

Whenever I travel to a country or island that I have not been to previously I try and buy commemorative silver or gold coins .When I was in Bermuda I went directly to the mint .
