After a much needed break from the blog to focus on spending Christmas with the family, keeping up with the daily vlogs and busy planning travels for the new year – we are back, happy 2016! We thought the perfect way to kick off the year would be to reminisce and look back on which blog posts were the most read and shared last year. In 2015 we had over 1 million people come and check out Flying The Nest and we just want to say a big thank you to all those that support and follow us, this is only our 2nd year being apart of the blogging world and we still can’t get over that crazy number – thank you!

With out further adieu, here are the top 10 most popular travels posts of 2015.
