It turns out "my Travelista" was Doc and everything on his itinerary was full. The experience was not quite what I expected. (I was picturing one of those Fashionista's from the TJ Max commercial) Somehow I couldn't picture Doc with high heels, wearing a beautiful dress and loaded with shopping bags from Max and Marshall's walking arm in arm with 3 other friends. It just didn't sync for me.
However, being the lover of words that I am, I Googled Travelista to find out if it really is a word, and if it really has a definition. Turns out it is! And it does! And quite a few people are using it. Who knew?
The definition, according to the Urban Dictionary, is: 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. I am beginning to like this!
But surely a Travelista isn't always traveling to an exotic locale. Doesn't he -or she have to "travel" to the grocery store? Wouldn't a "real" Travelista have to do all the mundane things that everybody else does in-between the exotic travels? And Really, couldn't we all be referred to as a Travelista???!!
I am always traveling to some locale! I am a Travelista!
