Eight-year-old Vivaan Gupta from Delhi has become the youngest Indian to travel all continents of the world. Vivaan, student of Bal Bharati Public School, Pitampura was conferred by both India Book of Records and Asia Book of Records and granted the title.
Vivaan’s family (his parents and grandparents) who so passionate about travelling have made it possible for him to be able to travel to all 7 continents along with his family in four years. He started with North Canada in 2015 and finished with Australia in 2019. In total, Vivaan has visited to 32 countries.
Out of the many things around the world, the most memorable thing in his mind is cute little penguins in Antarctica with loads of ice around. He also loved meeting Santa Claus in Lapland, Finland. For adventure, he loved the wildlife safari in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania and diving in the great barrier reef in Australia.
Anil Gupta, Vivaan’s grandfather said, “I am brimming with happiness to see our kid establishing the record. Our family has always been a huge travel enthusiast, but the youngest member of our family has set a national and asian record – I can’t be more happy and proud!”
Vivaan’s parents, Anurag and Nidhi have themselves travelled to more than 40 countries and are looking forward to more such exciting travels with Vivaan and his grandparents.
