Huang said the idea for this crazy journey germinated four years ago, “My girl took that year off to travel across Eurasia and North Pole on a road trip with me. After the trip we decided that if she secured admission to a US college, daddy will drive her to school,” Huang told Yangtse Evening Post, a local newspaper.
The moment Xinyi received her admission letter from Seattle University, her father started making arrangements for the long road trip. “Maomao (the girl's nickname) is going to college, and she would never ever again spend so much time with daddy…what I could do is to send her onto her own life path with this special tour.”
The father spent the next few months completing all the paperwork required for an international road trip.
