This is the final installation for my son’s trip to Madrid, Spain for the World Youth Day. It was a very memorable experience for him because it was his very first time to travel without his family and to top it all, it was a foreign travel to three European countries: France, Portugal and Spain. He joined the contingent of the Alliance of the Holy Family International which comprised of several attendees from different countries. Their contingent travelled the countries on two buses that ended in Madrid for the culmination of World Youth Day.
The trip was not a vacation of some sort because they were busy visiting religious sites and when they retire to their hotels for the night, they did evening prayers as well as morning prayers. It was a sacrifice on their part and yet my son told me that it was a rewarding experience.
