n.— «Flashpacker is a fairly new term—not to be confused with a backpacker who strips naked or a photographer on the road—used to describe independent travellers who journey in style. It applies to adventurous men and women, usually in their 30s, who have established careers and money to burn—the kind of people who won’t just climb a mountain, they’ll paraglide off it.» —“Flashpackers do it in style” by Genevieve Swart Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) Feb. 18, 2006.
