FemmyCycle?

Hi! I'm thinking about getting the FemmyCycle cup, but as it's so new there isn't much feedback on it yet! Have any of you tried it?
I'm sixteen and I have been using a small lunette since December 2011, and I love it! I would maybe like a cup with a higher capacity though (hence why I'm looking at the FemmyCycle - and it's non-spill opening is so cool!) as on my heavy days I have to empty it whilst at college.
Are there any other good capacity cups which would be suitable for a sixteen year old virgin? I have no issues using my lunette. :) Thank you!

Traveling in Vietnam with a Diva Cup

Hello everyone, not sure if this subject has come up before but I didn't see it in the FAQs.  I am traveling to Cambodia and Vietnam soon for about 3 weeks, and I'll need my Diva Cup while I'm there.  The issue is with the water quality - it's not always potable and I'm concerned about rinsing and cleaning the cup.  I don't know if I'll have access to boiling water either - haven't booked any hostels/hotels yet.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I just resort to tampons/pads for the week? I'd rather not skip or move my period, so I'd really like to know.  Thank you.
