We started our journey from Budapest in the morning of the 19th. There were 19 of us in our pilgrim group, all from Hungary. How we wished that there were participants from other countries as that would have given us an experience of our internationality. But that was not possible this time.
We arrived in Stary Sacz, next to the Polish border, and that was where we started the pilgrimage. We walked all the way, carrying our backpacks, but a jeep loaded with our bigger suitcases followed us. We got meals at each place we stopped, and stayed in gyms and classrooms of schools along the way.
We began our mornings with prayer and then we had breakfast. After that we walked about 15-20 kilometres a day with short breaks and an hour-long silence. In the afternoons, upon arrival at our destination, we had a mass followed by dinner. In the evenings, the headmasters, the priests or mayors, organised some programs for us. For example: a concert, or a meeting with pilgrims from other countries. On the last day of the pilgrimage, we visited a salt cave in Wieliczka, then we proceeded to Krakow.
