What He Found In His Grandparents’ House Sent Him On A Journey Back In Time

There are endless treasures to be found in our grandparents’ attics. While digging through these family heirlooms and artifacts, we’re lucky if we come across a few tattered photos from the war, or a chipped teacup from an old collection. Although substantial finds may be few and far between, these relics help us piece together the stories of our lives.

But one man hit the jackpot one day while rummaging through his grandparents’ things. What he discovered sent him on a stunning journey back in time.

He found a perfectly preserved film of his grandparents’ wedding that dates back to 1944.

Although this footage was captured decades ago, the affection shown by these two lovebirds is timeless.

I was actually pretty blown away by how immersive the experience was….which caused me to forget that to the outside world, I still looked like a crazy person with a headset on. This grandpa knows a thing or two about that, but he was so caught up in the moment that he truly didn’t give a damn.

He really committed to this experience.

“OUT OF MY WAY, FAMILY.”

Honestly, the next time I use a virtual-reality headset, I’m going to channel this guy and throw my inhibitions to the wind. Life’s more fun that way.
