Based on the online comparisons I've read, the D5100 should suffice as a general purpose travel DSLR. I'm not too worried about the less sensitive autofocus as much since it will most likely be used for landscape shots anyways. It's certainly a step up from a point and shoot without being too "dumbed down", like the D3200, for an advanced shooter. Besides, I have my D3S for the more "serious" type of photography.
If anyone else has used a D5100 as their travel DSLR, please feel free to post your experiences with it.
