At just five years old, Wenwen has been to places many other backpackers have never been. The little girl’s parents believe that their daughter could learn more from experiences rather than school.
South China Morning Post reported a story of a backpacker family of four who has traveled to the Himalayan mountain range and to the forests of Southern Asia. Tagging along with them are their kids, an eight-year-old son and their internet famous daughter, Wenwen.
Wenwen’s father, Pan Tufeng, said that while they have done their trips on foot, which meant walking 15-30 km (9-18.5 miles) per day last year, he is planning to get a car because he doesn’t want to play with his children’s lives.
According to Wenwen’s parents, they want to keep hiking until the little girl starts primary school and hopes that this would mold her to become tough and independent, according to AsiaOne.
Wenwen’s grandmother was initially not in favor of exposing her grandchildren to tough training but could now see in the kids the positive results of their travels.
