This is the second posting of my son’s pictures taken during his trip to World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid. This has more pictures and videos than the first one. Click here for the videos where all the pictures will be posted as part of this blog, click the picture and it will bring up a slideshow.
Having looked at the pictures gave me a sense of being there, however, it still does not compare to being actually there. On this post, the pictures here is a compilation of his trip to Madrid then to Lourdes and then back to Madrid. Looking at the videos and pictures I would have thought that he did not rest during the bus ride. It was really amazing on his part to be able to visit such religious sites, something like a pilgrimage that is priceless. The experience he gained meeting other people and learning from them as well they learning from him.
The culture, the food and people gave him an experience of a lifetime. However, I am hopeful that he will be able to go back but with the whole family next time.
