I cancelled my plans
I'll travel less/within my country
No effect

I travel for a living. Covid ruined travel so much that I started new business to move away from travel. I expect 2021 to be better, but full recovery won't happen until 2022. :(

@yuzumetrix Thanks for the feedback Gergely sad to hear that! I'm a hobby traveler and was also affected but I imagine the effect in your case is worse. Do you mind sharing generally how covid made your travel-based income infeasible?

@m0ham3d Sure thing. Covid cut my income 90%. I am seeing a small increase now that some countries are opening, but 5-10% increase will make no difference for now...

I became a full time traveler/nomad from 1 November 2019. And now for the last 3 months I am living in the same hostel in Laos. I do not see things to improve much. Not just the virus but there is a lot of impact on economy and people's lives. Travel is a luxury now when people are struggling in so many places.
