Queensland & Tasmania Day #1 & 2

  Ah, every Pilgrimage has an Odd Couple. When two states work together to create some sort of Frankenstein’s Monsteresque creation that can’t possibly work… But it always does! Through love and co-operation.

Pilgrim Life #2 – In Which We Replace One Circus With Another.

The Big Top. Our friend. Our companion. The meeting place of thousands of young people and leaders over the years. Time to get you full again!

TAS/VIC – Day 3 & 4

It’s been another great day on the Vic/Tas bus as we travelled to Port Augusta from Camp Coorong.

TAS/VIC – Day 2

Sometimes being on the road means being too busy to find reliable Internet. Sometimes it means writing lengthy blog posts about one’s adventures comes in low on the priority scale. So if you’re finding the daily updates perhaps a little lacking in the finer detail of the trip, it’s probably because too much fun is being…

TAS/VIC – Day 1

Day 1 went well as the Tas pilgrims boarded a plane for Melbourne yesterday morning, we were welcomed by the Vic Pilgrims and then started our journey towards South Australia.

TAS – Fundraising for the Pilgrimage

Fundraising. It can be both ‘fun’ and ‘draising’! But mostly it’s very, very useful. You’d think that taking 30-odd young people over the Bass Straight and then through 3 different states to the centre of the continent (and back!) would be both simple and cheap. But wrong! It’s neither of those things! But we do…

Up at Dawn

Day Two – Victoria and Tasmania

We spent the second day of our Pilgrimage at Camp Coorong! We ventured out for a morning bush walk learning about bush tucker and natural medicines with Uncle Tom an Elder from the Ngarrindjeri Community. After lunch learning some basket weaving making baskets, bracelets, and coasters out of reeds. Topping the day off with group…

Tassie – Almost Home…

On Monday we left Coober Pedy in the early hours of the morning we headed for west beach Adelaide, but along the way we had lunch at Port Augusta where we meet with the Victorian bus. Continuing on we stopped for a break at a park where we all got to enjoy using the play…

Tassie – On the Way Home

It was another early start for Tassie so the campsite could be packed before the dawn service, and with a number of pilgrims up late (or Early) with the prayer vigil we did quite well. And we had two breakfasts, one before the dawn service and one after depending in how organised you were. From…
