what feeling and views do you have on a bridge camera as a travel camera?

I've always liked a small, unobtrusive camera to take along for travel. It doesn't have to fit in a shirt pocket because my preferred method of carry is via a neckstrap, but it shouldn't weigh a lot or jut out half a foot in front of me. Many people these days think "super zoom" when a bridge camera is mentioned, but I prefer a smaller, lighter option for travel and currently use a Nikon P7100. Rich with features, easy to access settings without scrolling through menus, ability to customize its operation (with programmable function buttons and user modes), bridge cameras can offer a pleasing shooting experience in a tidy, self-contained package--everything you need is built in and ready to go, with no extras to tote along or be continually attaching and removing.
