humans of ny

February 10, 2014

One of my favorite parts of a 12 hour flight to New Zealand was the fact that I'd sit next to someone from another part of the world with crazy different experiences than my own. One of my favorites was a woman named Stephanie from Germany, whose life was about as opposite of mine as possible. I loved talking to her about everything from our families to religion to Cary Grant. Obviously I'd love to travel all over the world one day, but in the meantime, I really love when I am able to meet people with different backgrounds or from different cultures, and open my eyes to something outside of my own experience and comfort zone.



I guess that's one thing I love about Humans of NY (website here) or you can follow them on Instagram here. I love that you can catch a little glimpse of someone else's life or perspective - and for anyone else who might love people watching at airports, you should check it out.

i love this post. i have never heard of this before but can't wait to look into it! i think sometimes while living in utah and getting caught up in day to day life, it's easy to forget that there's a whole other world out there and so many different kinds of people!

I just discovered Humans of New York last week and spent the next 3 hours after that, combing through the facebook posts. It's amazing! I really want to get the book though I heard its a lot different than the Facebook feed because it does not contain a lot of quotes. Still want to check it out though. Nice feature!
