From their smartphone, users can download the application 'Siga a Cruz' to follow, at all times, the cross as it's used for World Youth Day.

Traveling to Brazil also offers the chance to learn about a new culture and getting familiar with a new language. The Brazilian government website includes a translator and basic grammar rules. For those who want to expand their Portuguese, there are also several phone apps to learn prayers, and even Bible passages in that language.

And though you may not need them, it is always useful to carry the main emergency numbers. In Brazil, the number to call for medical emergencies is 192, for the firefighters it's 193, and for police it's 197. And if what to wear is your most immediate emergency, check weather updates. It's important to recall that July is the 'coldest' month in Brazil, although even then, the average temperature is nearly 70 degrees.

Lastly, the official website for WYD www.rio2013.com has all the details and information on Pope Francis' agenda for his trip to Brazil. And to take a piece of the event with you, users can also purchase from home one of the dozens of items, like the official t-shirts of accessories for World Youth Day.
