A travelista is like a fashionista--but for travel. The fashionista is always up on the latest fashion trends and always looks top-notch. The travelista is always traveling to some new and exotic locale and is not dissuaded by any world turmoil or even wars. For example, the travelista will go to an exotic resort nestled in the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Arab spring? According to the travelista, this is the best time to travel to Northern Africa. It is more exciting that way! Traditional European cities are old hat to the travelista.
The travelista rolled her eyes at her friend's announcement of a vacation to Rome and Florence--she'd prefer a trip to Abu Dhabi or Az Zarqa.
