From Poland to the Vatican…hitchhiking


Mission accomplished: these six polish youth scouts made it in time for the canonization of John Paul II. Not an easy task when the only ticket they had were smiles on their faces. 

"We hitchhiked all the way from Poland, which is about 1000 miles away. It was a beautiful experience and we're very happy that we made it because this is a huge Polish celebration.” 

Two days ago they left from their hometown of Wrocloaw with their uniforms, backpacks, an enthusiasm to begin the journey of a lifetime. 

They tried to embrace the same adventurous and youthful spirit that John Paul II was so well known for. 

"Our Father, our Holy Father John Paul II will be made a saint tomorrow. He overcame many challenges.  For us now, coming from Poland and traveling 1000 miles, well we also faced difficulties, but we fought, succeeded and  won.” 

They took a total of six different rides to get to the Eternal City. Along the journey they met Germans, Slovenians, and of course, other Polish people. 

Now all that is left is to enjoy the canonization of their fellow countryman. When it's all said and done, they'll start worrying  about how to get back home.
