momondo – The DNA Journey finalists (2017)

Thank you for sharing the nerves, suprise and excitement… and all your love for an open world.

To celebrate diversity in the world, we set out to find it in ourselves. 1045 people from around the world won a DNA kit to discover where they really come from and became finalists in The DNA Journey. Here, some of them see their results for the very first time …

The DNA Journey competition was part of The DNA Journey: a celebration of diversity, and a journey into who we are and how we are all connected as a global family. Travel opens our minds: when we experience something different, we begin to see things differently – this is why we initiated The DNA Journey competition.

Worldwide, a total of 67,028 people joined in and shared how they would open the world through travelling. 1045 of these people won a DNA kit and went on to discover their heritage as revealed through their spit sample. By filming themselves reading their DNA results, they entered momondo’s competition to win their own DNA Journey.

22 people, one from each participating country, won a personal DNA journey.
