A Year in Review – The Best of 2015

“Comme le temps passe vite !”

“How time flies!”  Wow…  I can’t believe an entire year has just slipped past me!

It’s been an eventful year with the birth of my nephew, the passing of my uncle, and the horrendous attacks in Paris.  I’ve also been traveling about 50% of the time, so keeping on top of things continues to be challenging – but I bet most of you feel the same way in your own lives as well!

Before moving past the old and embracing the new year, let’s take a moment for a quick look back…

“Girl Gone Gallic’s Best of 2015” showcase images from the past years travels.  You can view them as an ensemble, or as a slide show by clicking and using the arrows to scroll through at your own pace. For a little mood music there’s Louane with “Avenir” to channel the inner teenage girl hiding within you…


What did you think of this years photos?

Did you like them ?  Did you have a favorite ?  One that intrigues you?  What would you like to see more of ?  For myself, the first photo with the Statue of Liberty is one of my favorites, but I also really like the shot with the dancers in traditional dress in front of the church – it’s like I’m still there!  Do you agree ?  And for those hardcore armchair surfers wanting more travel photos, checkout last year’s  “Postcards From France 2014“.

A new year, and with it new adventures…  Projects for 2016?  Leading my first tour « Fulfill your Francophile Fantasies » which will travel to Paris, Provence, and Monaco. Why not join me! info@girlgonegallic.com

Happy Travels,

    Ah yes – Paris is always so amazing…the ferris wheel picture was taken at the Place de la Concorde. On the other hand, the fountain called Fontaine du Gigot, is located in a tiny village in the Vaucluse called Pernes-les-Fontaines (http://www.provenceweb.fr/e/vaucluse/pernefon/pernefon.htm). Thank you for your comments!

    The photos you took are amazing! My favorite one is the one with the Farris Wheel and the one that intrigues me is the one with the fountain nozzle coming out of the guys mouth. Hope you have another fantastic year!

    Thank you! That’s what they call the baptismal well… and I loved the play of light as well. Actually, I like anything kind of moody – hmmm…what does that say about me???

    Thanks so much!

  7. January 14, 2016 at 10:26 am

    LOL! I try to mix it up… I’m not so good at the people pictures, need to work on my courage!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I’m definitely a struggling wanna be photographer 🙁

    The one of the group in traditional dress? That was taken in Aix-en-Provence, during the annual Feu de la Saint Jean that takes place in June. Tons of fun if you can make it some year!

    Street Art is so much fun! That one was taken on Denoyez Street in Paris – it’s an entire street of graffiti – awesome that the government allows a venue for artists to express themselves.

  11. January 14, 2016 at 10:18 am

    Thank you!

  12. January 14, 2016 at 10:18 am

    Hopefully so! Planning lots of travel as usual, but also launching my first small tour group in September !

  13. January 14, 2016 at 10:17 am

    Yes, it’s so much fun to look over the past year and reflect on the experiences.

    What stunning pictures. My faourite is the one of the font (at least, I think that’s what it is – I can be a bit dim where churches are concerned!). The way the light plays across the picture is beautiful.

  28. January 9, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Thanks! Did you know that Louane was an orphan? Both of her parents have died recently… and she of course has been made famous by winning “The Voice” in France a couple years ago.

  29. January 9, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Happy new year to you as well! There was only one black sheep in the whole herd of 3000…I guess that must be the black sheep of the family!

  30. January 8, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Gorgeous photos! I l’m drawn to the one with the 3 horses and their riders, and the sheep! (I have a soft spot for sheep – where was that taken?) Happy new year and happy travels in 2016 🙂 #AllAboutFrance

    I couldn’t possibly choose just one there are so many lovely photos here. The lavender, street art and Provencal dancers probably stood out a tiny weeny bit for me. Happy to channel my inner teenage girl with Louane, I think she’s OK! Good luck with your first tour, it sounds great. Thanks for linking this to #AllAboutFrance

    Thanks for your kind words and thank you for loving the snowflakes!!!

  33. January 6, 2016 at 12:08 am

    What I love is the entirety of the whole year! Your sight is SO eclectic! So many great stories about everything from all the parts of France. Keep up the great work in this new year and I love the snowflakes! 🙂
