Some people travel for the scenery, some for the food, while some for the adventure. Others take a trip to experience the culture or to shop. In John Thackwray's case, he explored the world to photograph different bedrooms of more than 1,200 millennials from 55 different countries and talked to them just about anything under the sun—politics, religion, education, and relationships among others. This passion project is his way of sharing their stories and letting other people experience how diverse our lifestyles, cultures, and traditions are.

These images will be published along with each interviewee's story in a book, which is slated to come out before the year ends. You can pre-order the book in John's website, My Room Project. (via upworthy.com)
