How does one properly make a pilgrimage in the Orthodox tradition?

Uber-Rich Version: Take a year and go undercover! Visit every monastery in America for a week at a time. At each location leave a symbolic donation of exactly $1732.03.

Rich Version: Take three weeks and go global! Go to Mount Athos, go to St. Petersburg, go to Jerusalem, go to New Zealand. At each location leave an icon and buy a new one. Return with the last icon and donate it to the local food pantry or soup kitchen.

Upper Middle Class Version: Take two weeks and visit the Orthodox schools of Europe and soak in their sanctity of learning and thought! Paris, Munich, Bulgaria, Greece, Poland, and more. Talk to the professors and ask them about the real theology behind the essence/energies distinction.

Middle Class Version: Take one week and visit the Holy Land! Act like a pilgrim, not a tourist: find that which you've been searching for all your life. It's 8 miles NNE of Jerusalem, under a tree in the center of town.

Lower Middle Class Version: Take a weekend and visit a struggling but well-respected monastery! Jordanville needs your support, be a good chap and lend a hand.

Po Version: You are a wretched creature, yet God may yet shine his light on you! Talk to someone in your parish (e.g. your priest) and ask if you can get a ride with them the next time they go to a monastery.

This is great. Is there something you eat that gives you these ideas? I'm gonna be doing the lower middle class version soon.

Over a dozen years for a reply. Poor, lonely thread.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.
