What to bring for WYD?

2016-07-08 / Infopak

Very soon you will need to back your bags before leaving for World Youth Day. To experience it in the best possible way it's worth bringing all the things you need.

World Youth Day is an extraordinary time of joy, laughter, meeting, prayer but also of madness! To experience them in the best possible conditions, here is a list of things you need during WYD.

Fabiola: “Don’t forget to have a good arrangement of your clothing, so as to respect places of worship. Also, don’t bring valuable things with you, such as watches or jewelry.”

Ton: “Bring only what is needed, don’t unnecessarily burden yourself! Most important are good walking shoes, a flashlight, clothing in which you can sit on the ground and gifts from your country.”

  • Your identity document or passport (mandatory) and visa (if there is such a need)
  • A backpack with rain protection. It’s important that the backpack be light for carrying and big enough to hold everything that you will need during this WYD.
  • A foam mat
  • A sleeping bag
  • Water bottle (we unfortunately aren’t camels…)
  • Flashlight
  • Towel
  • Toiletry kit
  • Walking shoes and sandals
  • Shower flip-flops
  • Clothing for sunny and rainy weather
  • A hat to protect you from the sun
  • Sunglasses
  • Fan
  • Sunscreen (probably none of us wants to look like a beet!)
  • Bug spray
  • All necessary medications
  • Hand sanitizer
  • A garbage bag to protect your sleeping bag from rain
  • Stickers/flags/bracelets/gifts from your country
  • Radio (or telephone) to listen to the translations of the Main Events in your language
  • Camera to immortalize nice occasions
  • A phrase book
  • Your smile :-)
