Finding things to do when you can't get on the road

We ain't going nowhere. The current situation has put a clamp on just about everything, especially those of us who are travel writers. Many of you are locked down in one country or another and are having to take some new steps in regards to money or try to keep from going stir crazy.

Amazon has dropped their affiliate commission down and I wouldn't be surprised if E Bay tries to raise its charges. Google will more than likely come up with something as well.

A lot of travel blogs I've browsed haven't done anything for some months. I keep some posts on hold, just in case things like this happen and had begun a hobby to keep me busy for a while, dropped it after some stuff I bought was so bad it wouldn't work. Also I'm retired and have a meager pension, so not too bad on the score.

Anyone else got some ideas?

We're still looking for a base in Spain. Thinking we'll travel less, spend more on a nice place with lots of green space and maybe some room for a door.
