    Default Medical insurance when you travel

    Likely most residents know this, but it was something we just learned ... if you are a Bonaire resident with a sedula and covered by the health care systems here (as we are), if you plan to travel, you simply have to go to the health care office (nearby the belastingdienst) and request a travel letter. Get that and you're covered !! How cool is that !!
