These past three weeks have been a whirlwind of adventure as we've grown in our faith through both good times trials. It's all been worth it. As much as I'm excited to return home, I will definitely miss being on the road.
Many of the people I've had the joy and honour of meeting on this trip I may never see again. But isn't that the nature of a pilgrimage, and even life sometimes? All we can hope is to make a positive influence in the lives of those we met along the way.
Many thanks go out to Olek and Magda of Gdansk, the various parishes that hosted us and the priests that accompanied us, our Polish bus driver, Mary Pisko-Dubienski, Father Richard Au, all the pilgrims in our group, and anyone else I might have forgotten but am eternally grateful to.
And of course, to you, my faithful reader. Thanks for trekking to World Youth Day Krakow 2016 with me!
We will be spending the final day travelling.
God bless, and thanks for all the well wishes!
