The pandemic has shaped our world in new ways. Once bustling tourist attractions have sat almost vacant. The local economies are in shambles. However, some destinations have taken this opportunity to reinvent themselves. It is fitting that a city most known for its exposure from Games of Thrones series is on the forefront of forging the new digital nomad experience.
