Lisbon, Portugal, Aug 9, 2023 / 08:30 am
Young Seattle couple Luke and Tina Nguyen have been to seven World Youth Day gatherings between them.
But the international event in Lisbon, Portugal, Aug. 1–6 was the first time they traveled to the weeklong meeting of young people as a married couple — and the first time they traveled internationally with their 14-month-old son, Finn.
“I’ve always loved going to World Youth Day. It’s a great opportunity to travel and I just thought it would be such a special thing for our firstborn to go to World Youth Day as well,” Luke told CNA after the Saturday night prayer vigil with Pope Francis on Aug. 5.
The husband said beforehand the couple had watched a lot of videos on Instagram about traveling with babies.
