Interested as well. I’ve heard a lot of people have done so recently. Iceland Air changed some of their policies (such as no longer allowing unrestricted onward flights), and I’ve heard tests or proof of vaccination is required.

Following too. Been wanting to do another trip to Iceland and eyeing a trip late August.

Thinking of going the week of the 4th of July

I went a few years ago. Very pleasant but very expensive. Also a lot of driving. I’d really like to go back.

Same! I have a travel voucher there from a cancelled trip in 2020. Wanna actually get there this year!

I went pre pandemic and loved it. Iceland is such a great country though expensive. Last I checked their covid cases weren’t too bad. In any case, I highly recommend Iceland. If I could , I’d leave the states and retire there haha

Go here, click on Iceland. Explains the current rules for entry. It’s updated every day if there is a change. https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/fly/travel/international-map.html

I've gone through the rules in details. I'm just wondering personal traveling experience to Iceland recently after they re-open borders....🤗

Hi Fishes,

I am about to join a new org in a few days and they have planned a travel to Europe for me to get Technical KT. But the thing is they said only for 2 weeks. They are going to file a business visa(I can stay up to 90 days). I want to spend some more time there( atleast 2 months). How I can convince them to increase this duration? Since I will be new there I'm not sure what to say. Only thing I know at this time is, the project is a bit complex and all developers are outside India.

My partner got a City of Toronto offer. Salary band is 104-121k. HR asked for his expectations and he said 115k. HR came back with a 106k offer stating nobody on the team makes that much so they cant offer it. Also said she is unsure if there is any wiggle room if any at all. I’ve looked at everyone on the team with the same titles salary on the sunshine list and the lowest I see is 121k. I assume there is an OT component of some sort but also can’t confirm. Thoughts? /negotiating advice?

My best friend lives alone in NYC, as do I. We’ve been staying at home (occasionally go for short walks separately in our own neighborhoods). This Friday, my friend twisted her ankle and asked I come over with some groceries since it was past delivery time. I stayed for the weekend since she needed help cleaning and we haven’t seen each other. After thinking about it, I’m feeling anxious that I’ll get the virus (even though none of us has been in contact with others and don’t have symptoms)
