I don't see why you would want to use such a card and risk so much things when travelling overseas. I think you'd be better served with a 4GB x 4pcs or something of SD.
I came back from Taiwan 2 days ago, I made use of this X2 4GB for video (non-critical). Kena another CHA, but battery pull revived it. Too risky to take vacation photos.
Even for normal SD I pad it over another 8GB and another 4GB normal SD cards.
