(名詞) 奢華的背包客 (backpacker)。這個字是由 flash 和 backpacker 拼綴而成，亦寫成 flash-packer。
-- flashpacking (現在分詞/動名詞)：背包旅行。
flash 這個形容詞頗為古老，最早可追溯至 1785 年，意為「奢華的；炫耀的；擺闊的」-- 通常指這種奢華或炫耀行徑已到沒有品味的程度，因此是個貶抑之詞。
Europe's hostels now offer cool upmarket accommodations at bargain prices. There are still the communal areas that made hostels the social place to be in the early '90s, but now they are matched by posh facilities. The clientele includes fewer backpackers, more flashpackers: holidaymakers with a taste for the nice things but who are cost-cutting in keeping with the climate.
