Good day, I am interested in knowing which linux distro is best for when I or a girl from Eastern Europe goes travelling to Turkey, South America, North America, France...? For say using an internet cafe, or a library computer or any that are handy?

If I were to select, I'd pick one that was meant for rugged or military specs. I'd also make an assumption that you wanted to install your own OS on these to use.

Look at a situation of a girl that has just done a runner from being sold in Turkey, and maybe she has her mobile phone or only what is in her pocket. And she does not know where she is, as she was told she'd be in Italy. She does not understand the alphabet, and finds an internet cafe. Needs to find her bank's local outlet, maybe bank online, or find the police, and a way back to the airport and buy a ticket... maybe go to hospital...

I get the feeling the police station may be the first place to go.

I do not know how it is related to a pendrive. She does not understand the alphabet, how can she use anything like internet, banking or buying a ticket online. Ho can she buy anything.... Anyway I suggest to buy any kind of pendrive and use some tools to secure info on that (by the way in internet cafes you can find mainly windows and cannot run your own os from a pendrive).
