A quick google search for 'mini corded phone' and 'magic jack' shows there are very small phones available pretty cheap to plug into this for travel purpose. I also imagine you could unplug the hotel/ internet cafe's phone and plug it into the magic jack... if noone's looking...

It says here on this page a person can change the configurations and force the computer to use your regular headset.
I bought a Magic Jack when they first came out. Maybe they've improved but it didn't work so well when I had it. Instead of ringing like it was supposed to when a call came in it went straight to the voicemail. But that was about 2 years ago and maybe it's improved. Also the support was next to none. But as I said it could have improved since then. Now it did call out just fine so for a traveler's purposes that might be just what you want.
I have used the device, its amazing, I use it for my business because i do a lot of long distance calling. for those of you who have their own business and communicates over the phone a lot, magic jack will save you a lot of money. think about it you pay about $40/month for a land line phone and only $20/year sing magic jack for unlimited local and long distance calling.
you be the judge, its a no brainer
