Very proud of their origins, 67 people decide to take a DNA test, but they get the SHOCK of their lives! They’ve called it the DNA journey!

Travel search site Momondo conducted a DNA experiment with 67 people from around the world and asked: do you dare question who you really are? Participants were asked what they thought the test would uncover, and were also encouraged to share some of their views and prejudices about people from different parts of the world.

We’re all a lot more connected than we think we are.

That’s the message behind a powerful new video called “The DNA Journey,” from travel search engine Momondo. Partnering with the company AncestryDNA, the site tested the DNA of 67 people to map their genetic ancestry.

But each one actually had their DNA tested and their reactions to their results were “spontaneous,” the company said.

The eye-opening video comes off a study commissioned by Momondo that found that 48 percent of responders believed that people “are less tolerant of other cultures today than five years ago.”

It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think.
