|Tired Canadian pilgrims slump over during a break hiking toward the overnight|
pilgrimage in Krakow.
My adventures at World Youth Day are now over. We have seen the Pope twice in person, experienced many beautiful churches and learned about the history of Poland.
We have walked many kilometres, sang many hymns, shed blood, sweat, and tears throughout the pilgrimage and grown stronger in our faith.
But despite World Youth Day ending, our pilgrim group will continue to explore Europe for one more week. We will be heading to Czech Republic following a day of rest and recuperation.
