Fighting The Flashpacker Label (What Is A Flashpacker Anyway?)
Published on September 01, 2010
What it really boils down to is traveling, right? How you travel is one thing, but simply experiencing the nature and lessons of travel is the bottom line.
Yeah, I'm not big on labels myself. I've also heard the term "flashpacker" for some one that travels with a lot of electronic gear like phones, computers, cameras, etc... (which I guess indicates someone traveling with a good amount of money). My feeling is that it's not about the label, it's about the substance.
