Welcome to week 260 (12/24/2015) of Travel Photo Thursday and our Christmas Eve edition! Wherever you are, and whatever traditions you celebrate, the best of the season! In just a few short hours I begin my journey to Barcelona, where I will land 9:35 am on Christmas morning. I’m sure you’ll all know how excited I am. This is the first major travel I’ve done since last winter, so I feel long over due for an adventure. This week I am publishing a short Travel Photo Thursday 2015 round-up. The seven posts below were the most commented on in 2015. Please enjoy!

  1. Such gorgeous shots, Nancie. Hard to believe we’re going into a new year already – I’m just catching up to Christmas!
    Thanks for hosting another year of TPT, hope to see you in the New Year.

  2. Beautiful photos and I can see why they drew so many comments and responses. Like Marcia, just want to thank you for another year of TPT – I’ve taken some wonderful trips through this link up and made some very special friends. Merry Christmas. Happy travels! Jackie

  3. What a year! Great selection of photos. The Lemon Meringue pie looks very tempting to me right now. Here’s to an awesome 2016!

  4. I see a post there that I’ve missed and I will check out the bamboo forest next. But before I go there, have a Happy Christmas Nancie, which I know you will do seeing you are off on a travel adventure. I am totally jealous but looking forward to hearing about it all. I can’t think of better places to be going than Spain and Portugal.

  5. Water and beach shots always gets people in. I think there is something calming about water and the sea. Hope you enjoy your Christmas Nancie and thank you for your support during 2015. Looking forward to hearing all about Spain in 2016! xx

  6. Gorgeous photos, Nancie! I’m looking forward to your posts about your adventures here in Europe! Enjoy!

  7. Merry Christmas, Nancie. I’m glad the smog finally released you from Beijing and you made it to Europe. I’ve always enjoyed your TPT posts. You’ve really upped my awareness of Korea, Chiang Mai and Nova Scotia over the years. The Lemon Meringue looks so tempting, and it’s making me think that a “Guess where this is?” post would be fun because I would have never guessed Korea.

  8. Happy New Year! I enjoyed your 2015 review, and look forward to where you will take us in 2016. Happy travels.
