1. My blog turned 1 years old – woot woot!

2. I spent 4 adventure filled days exploring Iceland solo. *Correction* This was actually my third solo trip (how could I forget about my first solo trip to Chicago back in 2013). So far I’ve traveled solo to Chicago, Paris, Brussels, and Iceland.

3. I had a great time staying at a hostel in Reykjavík and like I had hoped, I made new friends from all over the world and it all started with a smile and an introduction. “Hi, I’m Danielle, where are you from?”

4. In addition to wanting to travel to South Africa, I’m also itching to go to New Zealand and Turkey.

5. The student loan section of my blog continues to grow. Lots of more repayment tips coming soon.
