Then the scenic Amalfi Coast, in Italy, is the right bet for you.

Take a look at the list and pick your favorite summer road trip destination.

Route 66 – United States

If you have ever taken a drive in the United States, you most likely heard of the U.S. Highway, Route 66. This highway first gained popularity in the mid-1920s as the country’s first all-weather highway linking Chicago to Los Angeles. In total, Route 66 spans over 2,400 miles and offers so much to explore along the way. This route became very famous as it goes straight through the heart of America crossing over eight states and three time zones. These states include Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and finally California.

This road trip route will take you through historic and natural landmarks in the southern half of the country including the Grand Canyon, the Ozarks, Mojave Desert, The Painted Desert, and more. You can even pop in and visit the Route 66 Hall of Fame, to learn more about the history of this national treasure. One thing is for sure, if you are embarking on a USA road trip this summer, you better take a drive down Route 66. You’ll be mesmerized by scenic landscapes filled with mountains, mind-blowing National Parks, forests, and other natural wonders in the United States.

Mongol Rally – Mongolia

Buckle in, bring a good book, and get set because the Mongol Rally road trip extends over 10,00 miles. That’s right! This epic adventure takes you all the way from the UK to Mongolia. While there is no official route, the goal of this road trip is to make it from any European destination to Mongolia in one piece and sometime between mid-August to mid-September. It can also take anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months depending on your route and can cross over 18 countries. So if you are looking for a wild ride through the world’s most intense terrains, and the opportunity to see Europe and Asia unlike ever before, then this is the perfect road trip for you. One adventurer, Bassam Tarazi, put it best when he said “When you travel across half the world, you learn some things.”

Amalfi Coast – Italy

The Amalfi Coast dotted with pink-hued houses at dusk.

A UNESCO Heritage site, due to its scenic beauty and rare natural landscape, one must visit the Amalfi Coast in Italy at least once in their lifetime. The actual town of Amalfi and its neighbors are located in the southern province of Salerno. While the towns are typically only accessible by bus and ferry, this is the perfect destination for summer road trips from cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, and Milan.

Often compared to a painting, the Amalfi Coast cities welcome thousands and thousands of visitors every spring and summer to back on its beaches and take in the panoramic views from the top of the hills. If you’re looking to fall in love with a destination this summer, then you definitely will with the Amalfi Coast.

A great idea for an Amalfi Coast summer road trip is to plan a 7-day itinerary and drive along the southern tip of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. During your trip, you can make pit stops in cities such as Salerno, a port city southeast of Naples; Ravello, and the jaw-dropping Positano, a cliffside village dotted with pastel-hued houses.

Costa Verde – Brazil

The blue-green ocean surrounded by rocks and a forested hill on Trindade Beach, Brasil.

The journey from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo is one for the books. While you have to pass through some busy traffic in the city first, the drive along the Costa Verde is absolutely breathtaking. The full route is 350 miles (560 kilometers), and there are multiple stops you will want to make along the way. One of the best stops in the historic city of Paraty, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Framed by mountains and filled with 17th- and 18th-century buildings, Paraty is the perfect destination for a weekend on the beach.

During your summer road trip in Costa Verde, you can also plan to take a boat tour to one of the 365 islands off the coast and hiking the Serra do Mar, a 1,500 km mountain range. We also recommend taking a surf lesson, go paddleboarding, and enjoy the sunshine off the Atlantic Coast. This is one of the best ways to see the best Brazil has to offer.

Great Ocean Road – Australia

The turquoise ocean surrounded by cliffs on the Great Ocean Road, in Australia.

If Australia is in your travel plans this year or you’re an Aussie and want to explore your own country, then take a drive down Great Ocean Road. The expansive stretch of coast will take you along some of Australia’s most beautiful landscapes. Including the 12 Apostles, Great Otway National Park, London Arch, and more. The entire drive is about 250 miles (400 kilometers), about a 90-minute drive from Melbourne’s city center. It extends all the way to the southernmost point of the continent. Extend your getaway and stay at one of southern Australia’s vacation rentals or hotels to indulge in a one-of-a-kind outdoor getaway.

Panorama Route – South Africa

South Africa’s scenic road trip, Panorama Route, is not just a beautiful drive but a historic adventure through the world’s third-largest canyon, Blyde River Canyon. The entire route takes you through the Mpumalanga province and takes about two to three days to complete. Visitors will love adventuring through waterfalls, forests, and South Africa’s many natural landmarks including Echo Caves and God’s Window. You can also visit national parks and reserves including Kruger National Park and Mount Sheba Nature Reserve. Take a safari drive through the game reserve. You may even spot some of the big five along the way. This will be a trip unlike ever before.

Ring Road – Iceland

The Ring Road leading to a range of snowy mountains, in Iceland.

Iceland’s Ring Road will take you around the entire island. If you ever dreamt about exploring Iceland’s breathtaking waterfalls and geysers, then this is the best way to see it all. The full drive will take about 12 to 13 hours. However, due to the conditions and roads usually takes about a week to complete. There are a few routes you can take, and route one is about 800 miles long. Your trip will most likely start in Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. Start off day 1 of your adventure by indulging in a day of luxury at the Blue Lagoon. Your excursions will also take you whale-watching, glacier walking, hiking, and so much more. Discover it all on your once in a lifetime road trip around Iceland.

Cabot Trail – Nova Scotia

The Cabot Trail Road surrounded by green forests, at Nova Scotia.

While this list of road trip includes many that last anywhere from a few days to over a month, Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia is one of the shorter road trips on this list. However, that does not mean it does not have just as much to offer road trippers. The drive takes up to five hours and is 185 miles (298 kilometers). The route will take you around Cape Breton Island allowing you to enjoy the gorgeous views. The trail is named after John Cabot, an explorer who found his way to the islands in 1497. The rugged coastline will present you with a relaxing journey of views right over the highlands. Canada has many road trips you will want to embark on, and this one makes the top of the list.

Patagonia – Chile

While this time of year is actually the winter in Chile, June-September is still an excellent time to take a road trip to Patagonia. One of the most jaw-dropping sights in the world is a view of the Torres del Paine national park. Seeing the glaciers and frozen lakes up close offers such a remarkable feeling. You have to see it for yourself. There are also many advantages to road tripping in Patagonia this time of year. Including ice-skating on the lake, watching for arctic wildlife, and hiking. While many people choose to take this drive on their own, it is always a good idea to consult with a tour company or guided road trip. Extra planning comes in handy to make sure conditions are optimal before embarking on your journey. Find incredible accommodations on the way.

Nha Trang to Quy Nhon – Vietnam

The blue ocean framed by cliffs in Nha Trang to Quy Nhon, Vietnam.

This road trip is filled with sweeping views of the Vietnamese countryside, which is dotted with fishing villages, and incredible lush verdant landscapes. If you are a fan of motorbikes and bicycles, you’ll enjoy taking this road trip. On your route, you’ll also have a great time if visiting sites such as the Ba Ho Falls and Da Dia Reef. The journey up highway one takes a total of four hours and is 131 miles (212 kilometers). Not only is Vietnam very peaceful and beautiful, but it is also an incredibly budget-friendly destination for your vacation. Extend your trip by staying at one of the charming hotels along the South China Sea.

Pacific Coast Highway – United States

The Big Sur, on the Pacific Coast Highway, in California.

This is definitely one of the most epic road trips of all time. The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most famous highways in the United States, and it’s part of the State Route 1, that runs along most of the Pacific coastline of California. Many travelers begin their road trip in Los Angeles, but a great idea for a summer trip is to start driving from Seattle. You can then drive along the coast, and explore cities such as Portland, in Oregon, until you reach Eureka, which is the first stop in California. In Eureka, make sure you go to the Sequoia Park Forest & Garden before making your move to San Francisco. You can then head south and stop in Santa Barbara for a romantic weekend in California, and finally in San Diego.

This authentic North-American road trip will take you to uncover gorgeous ocean views — especially in San Diego — gorgeous Instagrammable places in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and plenty of amazing wineries in Santa Barbara.

Destination Deep-Dive 7 MINS READ

Across the globe, people travel far and wide to visit The New Seven Wonders of the World. But, do you know the history of these sites and how they came to be so important to the global community?

For centuries the world has celebrated amazing sculptures and architecture. So much so that seven of these landmarks have the global status of being a “Wonder of the World”. Although there are now several categories with this title, the original list of ancient wonders dates back to a piece of work written in 225 B.C. by Philo of Byzantine called On Seven Wonders. These landmarks are revered because they show the true capability humans have for incredible imagination and creativity. After all, each of these architectural phenomenons is manmade.

Note: Make sure to double-check COVID 19 precautions, protocols, and operating hours before you visit any of these sites.

The New Seven Wonders

pyramids in egypt

The only ancient wonder that still exists today is the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt. In order to choose the new seven wonders of the world, a foundation was created in 1999 to vote and choose them. After over 100 million votes, the new sites were revealed in 2007. They are Petra, in Jordan, The Colosseum, in Italy, The Great Wall of China, in China, The Christ the Redeemer, in Brazil, The Chichén Itzá, in Mexico, The Machu Picchu, in Peru, and the Taj Mahal, in India.

Although these sites are currently closed to the public, travelers can still admire and explore them through virtual tours. Learn about each of the new seven wonders of the world and plan for your future visit.


Petra, Jordan

new seven wonders of the world petra

Petra, Jordan is one of the most remarkable landmarks on the planet. This ancient Jordan city dates back from the 1st century B.C., and it used to be the Arabic capital of the Nabateans Empire. Back then, the state became very wealthy due to its position in the trading routes between Arabia, India, Africa, and the West. Its moniker is the Rose City and it became a UNESCO Heritage site in 1985.

Home to 800 tombs, known as the “Royal Tombs”, including one estimated to be over 2,000 years old, Petra is an exhibiting travel destination for history-enthusiasts. As one of the oldest cities in the world, the site was inhabited by the Edomites (from 18th to 2nd century BC), the Nabateans (2nd century to 106 BC), and the Romans (106 to 395 BC).

The beautiful sandstone walls of Petra became famous after they were featured in the 1989 film, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. According to the Petra Development and Tourism Region Authority (PDTRA), Petra welcomed over one million visitors in 2019.


Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

new seven wonders of the world christ the redeemer

The colossal Christ the Redeemer statue looks over Rio de Janeiro from the summit of Mount Corcovado, a privileged location in Rio. Considered Rio de Janeiro’s most famous landmark, the statue sits in the National Park of Tijuca, towering 2,310 feet above the city. The statue is 98 feet tall and its arms span 92 feet wide from fingertip to fingertip.

The construction of this gigantic statue took place in April 1922, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and it was completed in 1931, and its design was crafted by many different designers and engineers, such as the Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski and the engineers Heitor da Silva Costa and Albert Caquot.

And in case you’re wondering how did Christ Redeemer was placed at the top of Mount Corcovado, here’s the answer: because of its massive size, the statue was put together on top of the mountain, and the necessary materials were transported on a small cog-wheel train.

Visited by nearly 2 million people each year, it is the largest Art Deco-style sculpture in the entire world. Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro, celebrates and honours the 100th year anniversary of the Brazilian Republic. It is still one of the most visited sites in not only Brazil but the world, and there is even a replica of the statue in Lisbon, Portugal. A great tip is to try to visit it during a day with clear skies, so you can enjoy the best views of the city.

In March 2020, the statue was illuminated with flags of all the countries heavily affected by COVID-19. An act that showed an outpour of support for the global community.


Chichén Itzá, Mexico

new seven wonders of the world chichen itza

Over 2 million tourists visit Chichén Itzá, the second most popular archaeological site in Mexico, a year.  This UNESCO World Heritage Site is an ancient city, which consists of Mayan ruins located on the northern half of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. It’s a great day trip if you’re traveling to Cancun or Playa del Carmen, for instance, and when taking a tour to Chichén Itzá, you can walk among the giant pyramids.

The El Castillo, also known as the Kukulkan Pyramid, which is located in the very center of the site, is one of the only buildings to maintain its original structure. Historians say Chichén Itzá was built from 600 A.D. until 1221 during the Mayan empire. Due to its location and size, it stood as one of the most important places in Mayan culture. In December 2019, a new daily visit record was broken, with over 18,000 visitors in just one day. It is a must-visit when planning a trip to Mexico. Curious fact: the term Chichén Itzá means ‘the mouth at the well of Itza’, and it’s believed that Itza means ‘water magicians’.


The Great Wall of China, China

new seven wonders of the world great wall of china

A visit to the Great Wall of China is usually on top of the bucket list of people who want to uncover the new seven wonders. But why? Well, first of all, because it’s one of the most famous structures in the world, acknowledged it as the largest man-made structure on Earth. Built in the early 7th century B.C. the Wall took over 2,500 years to be completed, and its construction spanned over more than 10 Chinese dynasties, which is a very long time.

It’s impossible to precise the wall’s location, since it winds up and down the country in a dragon-like shape, extending over 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometers) and winding through h 404 towns in 15 provincial regions across northern and central China. Made out of a range of materials, like stone, brick, rammed earth, and wood, the walls were used for border control and for defence against nomadic invaders. Due to both human and natural causes, almost 1/3 of the wall is missing today. Thus, the Chinese government has commissioned many restoration projects to renovate the wall and its missing parts.

The Chinese don’t refer to this wonder as “the Great Wall.” They call it Chángchéng, which means Long Wall. Visited by over 10 million people a year, this wonder of the world became a UNESCO Heritage site in 1987.


The Colosseum, Rome, Italy

new seven wonders of the world colosseum

Located in the heart of Rome, Italy, The Colosseum stands proud as a symbol of power for the country. The construction of the Colosseum started in 70 A.D, however, it did not officially begin until 72 A.D., being finished only in 80 A.D. Built in the heart of Ancient Rome, the Colosseum was ordered by Emperor Vespasian who wanted to build the largest amphitheater in the world. In fact, it is still the largest in the world. With an oval shape, the structure is 189m long, 156m wide and 50m high, and it’s made from stone and concrete. During its time, the Colosseum could seat as many as 50,000 to 70,000 spectators, and it was used to host gladiator contests, and the vast majority of combatants were men slaves, condemned criminals, or prisoners of wars. The Colosseum also hosted mock sea battles and animal hunts, and some of the animals even included big cats and crocodiles.

By the 20th-century, two-thirds of the Colosseum was destroyed by neglect, vandalism and natural disasters, including the arena’s marble seats. A careful restoration program began in the 1990s, and this historical landmark is still one of Italy’s most famous tourist attractions in the world, being visited by over 7 million people a year.


The Taj Mahal, India

The Taj Mahal is so much more than just a white marble mausoleum located in Agra, India. Listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, the monument was built by Emperor Shah Jahan from 1632 to 1648 for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died on June 17, 1631.
Representing the emperor’s everlasting love for his wife, the building stands as a beacon of light and strength for India and the global community.

Made of white marble from Makrana, in Rajasthan, the Taj Mahal combines a range of architectural styles, such as Islamic, Persian, and Indian styles. For the construction, other noble materials were used, such as turquoise from Tibet, jade and crystal from China, sapphire from Sri Lanka and Arabia, and lapis lazuli from Afghanistan.

Over 2.5 million visitors go to Agra, India, to visit the Taj Mahal every year. As are the other wonders, the Taj Mahal is also a UNESCO Heritage site since 1983. While photos of the building show its beauty, they cannot truly capture the delicacy and attention to detail. It is truly a place one must see in person in order to know its magnificence.


Machu Picchu, Peru

Last, but not least is Machu Picchu as one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. This site is one of the most breathtaking global landmarks and the true pride of Peru. Machu Picchu belongs to the Incan empire from the mid-15th-century. However, it wasn’t rediscovered until 1911 by archeologist Hiram Bingham.  He was searching for another ancient city when he found the green terraces and remains of the structure.

Many historians commonly use the term “ruins” when referring to this wonder, however, that is an incorrect description according to Machupicchu.org. It is best to describe this city as a sanctuary as it was a spiritual and sacred place for the Incans. Machu Picchu became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983.

12 Ways to Internationally Travel from Home

Hacks & Tips 9 MINS READ

As time goes by, the possibility of traveling again seems to be getting closer and closer. But, with border closures and restrictions still being a reality around the world, many travelers are looking for creative and fun ways to feed their wanderlust. If this is something you can relate to, good news: there are several ways you can travel without leaving home. You can re-visit some of your past trips through photos and videos, discover new places while binge-watching movies and tv shows, and also plan future getaways with bucket lists and Pinterest boards. The options are endless and, to help you satisfy your deepest cravings, we created a comprehensive guide with the best ways to travel from home.

The Best Ways to Travel From Home

Many don’t know about this, but going on vacation has many benefits for your health. Some of the top advantages of going on a holiday are increasing sleep quality, reducing stress levels, and even decreasing blood pressure. And while wandering around the world may seem like a distant possibility for many, there are several creative ways to maintain the healthy habit of traveling. The first one is going for a staycation, which consists of traveling to places nearby, sometimes even within your own city. Aside from the safety of avoiding long hours inside an airplane, there are other benefits of going on a staycation, such as boosting sustainable travel and avoiding jet lag.

But, in case your country’s regulations don’t allow any form of travel, you can always take a tour around the world without leaving the comfort of your home. This will keep your mind busy, help you stay inspired, and even excited about your next trip.

1. Make A Photo Album of Your Favorite Trips

It’s almost impossible to go on vacation without taking a million photos. However, it’s common that those amazing pictures usually live only on your phone or on your social media channels. So, since you’re home, you might wanna take advantage of the situation and relive your best international travel by making a photo album or scrapbook. Not only does this activity creates a great relaxing memento for you, but it is something you can share with generations and generations to come. You can even gather your entire family for some DIY scrapbook time, which is a great activity for bonding. Another amazing idea is to create themed photo albums or scrapbooks, such as “Summer Trips” or “Holiday Vacations”, for instance. You can also use digital tools, such as Canva or Shutterfly, to design the album.

2. Listen to an Audiobook or Read a Book About Travel

When it comes to travel books, the options are endless. Written by amazing authors all over the world, these books can simply whisk you away on an unforgettable adventure just using words. From Ernest Hemingway’s fictional escapades to Jedidiah Jenkin’s brave accomplishment of biking from Oregon to Patagonia, be inspired by reading or listening to international travel books. In case you want to travel from Italy to Bali, read the iconic Eat, Pray, Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert. Feel like uncovering the wilderness of Alaska? Then Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer, should be on the top of your list. If taking a road trip across the United States is on top of your bucket list, then get some inspiration by reading the famous On the Road, by Jack Kerouac.

And there are also amazing books that are not necessarily about travel but can make explore amazing destinations around the world. Craving a trip to Barcelona? Then read the best-seller The Shadow of The Wind, by Carlos Ruíz Zafón, and visit some of Barcelona’s most picturesque spots, from the Gothic quarter to Montjuïc.

Just find one —or more— books that you can’t get enough of and be sure to pack it with for your own future trip.

3. Have a Movie Marathon with Films from Around the World

Was there a movie that immediately made you think “wow I want to go to this place now”? Then this is the perfect opportunity to rewatch it. You can even start by watching the film adaptations of the travel books you read, such as Eat, Pray, Love; Into the Wild and On The Road. But there are more amazing films to include in your list. Midnight in Paris, by Woody Allen, will take you straight to Paris in the 1920s, and Walter Mitty will keep you daydreaming about Iceland.

There are hundreds of films that can take you far away and watching travel-themed movies is definitely one of the best ways to travel without leaving home. Pro tip: turn your backyard into a “home theater” by setting up pillows, Christmas lights, and a projector. Your movie experience will be so elevated, that you’ll even forget you are at home.

4. Take a Virtual Tour

The international community banded together to create innovative ways to offer global travelers the opportunity to travel without leaving home. Currently, one of the best experiences to explore the world from home is taking virtual tours, which are basically simulations of an existing location. Virtual tours are created from sequences of panoramic images that are stitched together and have become more popular than ever.

Thanks to virtual tours, you can visit museums, world monuments, national parks, and more. Whether you are interested in learning more about the intriguing artwork of Van Gogh or are curious about the history of the U.S. National Parks, virtual tours and experiences can be your unofficial tour guides right from home.

Art enthusiasts might wanna visit some of the world’s leading museums by using the Google Arts and Culture app. They can also take virtual tours on the website of renowned museums, such as the Salvador Dalí Museum, in Barcelona, the Guggenheim, in New York City, and the Louvre, in Paris.

Adventure-seekers will love exploring national parks and natural reserves. Currently, there are virtual tours in sites such as the Cliffs of Moher, in Ireland, and the Yosemite National Park, in California, USA.

5. Set Up a Fort in Your House

Especially with little ones in the house, making a fort is an excellent way to show them a brand new place. Whether you build a castle out of couch cushions and pillows and call it Buckingham Palace or layout all your towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards in the backyard to create the beaches of California, your kids will love going on an adventure you plan for them. It may just be their best yet!

6. Plan a Themed Dinner

During the pandemic, cooking soon became the preferred hobby for many who were homebound. From experienced cooks to newbies, several people started playing Master Chef at home by baking sourdough bread and trying new recipes. And if you’re one of those people, you can take advantage of your new hobby and travel to a new destination at the same time by cooking typical dishes from other countries.

Hosting a themed dinner can make things even more fun, as you can also include your friends and throw a virtual party. You can celebrate Cinco de Mayo by trying delicious Mexican recipes, learn how to make homemade pasta, and even try some unique coffee recipes. Ask your pals to bring their favorite dish so you can celebrate together, eat yummy food, and enjoy your at-home restaurant.

7. Listen to a Travel Podcast

Last week we created a list of the best travel podcasts to listen to in 2020. Not only these podcasts will give you helpful information for planning your future stay, but they will also provide you with great ideas on where to go, and what to do and see there. Podcasts are also a great alternative for books and movies, and you can listen to them anytime: while cleaning out your closet, working out, or before bed. Check out our list to find your new favorite show.

8. Re-Purpose Your Old Postcards

Do you have dozens of postcards sitting in a shoebox under your bed? If so, there are a few different ways to re-purpose them! Do a DIY (do it yourself) project. All you need is a couple of pieces of string and some clothespins to turn your wall into a global paradise.

You can also make photocopies and mail them to friends and family. Your loved ones will be so thrilled to receive mail from you during this time, and it’s a great way to share your past experiences with them too.

9. Make a “Bucket List” Pinterest Board

We have given you dozens of ideas for bucket list adventures, and now it’s your turn to make them a reality. A good place to start is by creating mood boards on Pinterest to organize your “Travel Around the World Bucket List”. You can create specific themed boards for each travel type, like surfing destinations, mountain getaways, romantic vacations, best cities for foodies, and more.

The advantage of doing this, aside from being fun and almost therapeutic, is that when you start planning your trips in the future, these trusty boards will help you organize and plan based on your interests. You can check out our CuddlyNest Pinterest page for inspiration.

10.Learn a New Language

Believe it or not, learning a new language is one of the best ways to travel the world without leaving home. This basically happens because, when you learn a new language, you usually start gaining interest in a new culture, which most of the time makes you want to travel. So, to make the most out of staying in, save some time during the week to learn a new language you’ve always wanted to. You can either take online classes with a native speaker or download language-learning mobile apps, such as Duolingo.

11. Watch a Travel-Inspired TV Show

Now that you already watched travel movies, read travel books, and listened to travel podcasts, you might wanna watch some travel-inspired tv shows. One of the best is, undoubtedly, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. This award-winning show follows the chef and best-selling author Anthony Bourdain as he eats his way out in the world. Bourdain travels to all five corners of the globe and explores the local culture and cuisine while visiting each destination. You can see him eating the most unusual things, such as goose intestines cooked in black beans sauce, pig soup, and balut, which is a fetal duck egg that is normally eaten in the Philippines.

And there are other great travel-themed shows to binge-watch from home. Available on Netflix, the Kindness Diaries is a documentary show that follows the journey of Leon Logothetis, a former London broker that travels around the world on his vintage Chang Jian motorbike. While exploring places like Alaska, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Logothetis relies only on the kindness of strangers for receiving food, gas, shelter, and everything else except for money.

12. Create a CuddlyNest Wishlist
