I am sharing the pictures from our group trip to attend World Youth Day 2023 in August with Pope Francis in Lisbon, Portugal. Our itinerary consisted of visiting the cathedrals and basilicas of Spain and Portugal, living out of a suitcase for 14 days in a different city every night. We walked about 10 to15 miles a day, we journeyed in bus for about 3,300 km and flew a round-trip flight of 12,351 miles.

Here are photos of pilgrims reading OC Catholic in Ávila, Spain.
