As always, the end of the year has come too soon.
We still haven't done all our Christmas shopping!
To soften the blow of time's indomitable march, travelers around the world use this time to reflect on the amazing journeys they took in the year past.
Or, better yet, to find inspiration for places to hit in 2016.
There's no finer place to start than CNN Travel's Instagram feed, which every day features beautiful shots taken around the world by CNN staff, contributors, photographers and readers.
The gallery above highlights some of the most popular pics we shared in 2015.
