There’s some big changes coming when it comes to COVID-19 travel restrictions – 14 new countries will be allowed to enter the country and nationals from 4 countries will be exempt from screening entirely. Plus we talk earthquakes and Húsavík, a small town with big Eurovision dreams.

Thanks to the lovely people at Valdís for the amazing cherry, lemon and bubblegum Icelandic ice cream creation – it was delicious when I finally got to eat it!

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
