WYD Trek: TNG -- Day 9

A never-ending journey

Joshua Tng snaps a selfie with  his fellow Canadian World
Youth Day pilgrims as they trudge down the streets of Krakow,
Poland, in the midst of World Youth Day.
A five hour train ride, 30 minutes of sleep in the past 24 hours, and a six kilometer walk to the school where we are staying? Sounds like a recipe for success!

Our group of pilgrims arrived in a small rustic town relatively close to Krakow. Everyone was exhausted from travelling and lack of sleep, but we still had to trek up a hill to the place where we are staying.

After an hour and a half of walking, everyone briefly passed out on the floor before setting off once again towards the main city of Krakow.

In the midst of the city, pilgrims from all over the world cheered, clapped, and yelled in all of our faces. Despite the noise, our spirits were lifted and our energy levels were restored a little bit.

It is a really incredible feeling to see so many people from all over the world on the same spiritual journey.

Tomorrow, we will visit Auschwitz.
