No. I dont think I will be doing that in the foreseeable future.

Yes I did it two years ago. What an amazing experience!! You must also try. It is simply out of this world.
Awesome, fatim. Where did you go?

by Vee
No. I don't follow any sort of religion or spiritual ideas that would require me to do so.
It doesn't have to be religious, lol. I have always wanted to go to Graceland in Memphis, and I would totally call that a pilgrimage!
by Vee
I would just call that a holiday.

This is the definition I found of a pilgrimage: 'A pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Typically, it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to a person's beliefs and faith, although sometimes it can be a metaphorical journey into someone's own beliefs.'
Oh! There you go, Vee, you've been 'told'!

I agree with YOU! I've seen my favourite film star's house, & I consider THAT a pilgrimage! It doesn't HAVE to be 'religious', IMO!

Any time, Vee, any time. Cheers!

Yes, to a marvelous place called Sandaoling in far west China. That's my mecca.
Sounds mystical.
by Vee
Not a religious one but as a family we made a kind of pilgrimage a few years ago now, to revisit the places of my father's childhood in Malaysia ans Singapore and also to visit my grandfather's grave in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. He was a POW in a Japanese death camp and worked on the infamous Burma-Siam railway. It was a very spiritual and meaningful journey for all of us but particularly my father.
It's really awesome you were able to do that, and as a family no less.
by Vee
Yes, it meant a lot to all of us and it wouldn't have been possible for my father without the rest of us there. He was only 8 when they left and had never returned, so had all sorts of buried emotions and fears to conquer.
Would love to go to Lourdes, Fatima or walking( if didn't have problem knees, couldn't do complete journey) a little of the way of Santiago de Compostela, Nthn Spain.

On a secular level, going to any ancient site I learnt about in School eg Egypt, Greece, Meso-America, would be a real pilgrimage to me because they 'mean' so much to me due years' of enjoyable study!
