Travel Newsletter - 31 July, 2020
The emerging beach city of Quy Nhon in Vietnam, digital nomadism going mainstream, tourist space ships, a seaside ghost town, and clown motels.
A weekly newsletter of great travel reads and news by James Clark from Nomadic Notes.
After enjoying the last few months of travel in Vietnam, it looks like the party is over for now. New cases have been detected in Da Nang, and the city has been closed down for tourism. There was one new case in Saigon that has been traced back to the Da Nang case, and we are bracing for a partial closure again like we experienced in April. I’m at least glad to be somewhere that is taking this seriously.

Assorted travel reads
“For a book project about 16th-century polar explorer William Barents, Andrea Pitzer needed to reach the remote Arctic island where he and his men came to grief. She booked passage on an expeditionary boat out of Murmansk, then headed north on a trip marked by unforgettable scenery, unexpected loss, and wild magic that changed her life.”
