DNA Journey with momondo

Where are we actually from?
No, I don’t mean from Elspe, a very small village in Lennestadt, which is a town in North Rhine-Westphalia, I mean where are we basically from, where are our roots?
We asked this question to ourselves so many times and now we finally got an answer to this due to the wonderful “DNA Journey” project in collaboration with momondo.

When we heard about the momondo DNA Journey, we were directly into it and super interested. Are we “only German” or are we also relatives to our friends around the world?
This was a question, we were really interested in and we wanted to find out more about this.

Truly like the slogan “Let’s Open Our World” does the DNA Journey work. You will receive a test tube in which you have to spit. Then register yourself online and send it via Mail to 23andMe.

After they analyzed it, you will receive the results and get informed about:
Where are you from?
Where are your relatives?
Who are your relatives?
How many other relatives do you have, which are also signed up on the platform etc.?

It’s super interesting!

But before we present you our results, have a look into these great Videos. They describe really good the feeling when you find out about your test results and where are you actually from.

It is really crazy how detailed they do the test and how specific they analyze it.

Especially if you travel so much as we do, it becomes even more relevant to you and you think much more about it if you might have relatives in this or that country. Sometimes you feel really close to some cultures and nationalities that you really think there must be something in common. So now we know it and know why this might be like that πŸ™‚

Also when you think about the current political situation in the world. Please always think about that we are one world, everybody is related to another one and we are all the same, even if we live in other countries, don’t have the same skin color and talk all the same language. But please don’t forget that none is better than the other one and be open for new things and cultures. There is always something you can learn from each other.

If you are also interested in the question where you’re from, kindly visit momondo and take the chance to be part of a great competition. You can win the journey of your life to the places you are originally from.

We are unbelievable happy that we can share our story with you and hope you think the same!

A lot of people always ask us if we can live our life here in Abu Dhabi the way we want, if I don’t have to cover as a woman, if I am allowed to drive the car, etc. And the answer is: YES!

We can do whatever we want and how we want and we are unbelievable happy to live in a country where everybody lives with everybody in peace. No one judges you because of your nationality, religion or place of birth, no one judges you regarding your skin color or language an everybody is interested in the others.
We are proud to say we got so many friends here, which are from:

Germany, Italy, Belarus, Russia, India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Agypt, Jordan, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Thailand, China, South Africa, Africa, Belgium, Holland, America, Canada, Croatia, Romania, Nepal, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, Greece, Spain, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Philipines, etc. (And I am sure we missed many in this)
It’s amazing to be part of this community and have the chance to learn from each other and to share with each other.

We are unbelievable thankful for this experience and never miss any day of our lives where we travelled the world and met all this wonderful people.
