Group Dynamics

Group travel has interesting quirks. It can be difficult keeping people together and getting them somewhere at the same time. You can expect that someone will always have to use the toilet, someone will get lost, someone will get sick, someone will miss a train/bus/metro, or someone will lose a plane ticket or money (and sometimes it’s the same person for all of the above). The best way to keep everyone on time and together is to leave lots of time for getting places and count heads after every mode of transportation.

 Groups in Crowds

One way to keep your group together while moving through a crowd is to have someone hold a unique flag that pilgrims can follow. If you are concerned about the group, have the flag stop on the side and let your pilgrims come to the flag to be counted.p>

Public Transit

Madrid has a comprehensive Metro system. It will be the primary means of transportation for WYD pilgrims. Groups have a few things to consider on the Metro. Click on our Transportation page for complete group instructions for getting on and off trains, and what to do when lost.
