In 1997, Zhang Shuangqi in Luoyang, Henan province picked up an abandoned(被遗弃的) baby girl beside the road.
Zhang took the girl home and raised her as his daughter. He named her Zhang Baige. “My father is not rich,” Zhang Baige said. “He also did not have any experience raising a child. It was hard for him, but he didn’t give up.”
The man took on several jobs at the same time to make a living. Although Zhang Baige did not go to college after high school, she worked hard. She opened her own company in Guangzhou and made a lot of money.
To spend more time with her father, who is now 75 years old, Zhang Baige stopped working to travel around the country with him. He always wants to see the world outside home.
Zhang bought a motorhome(房车) with about 660,000 yuan. From May last year, the two have journeyed from Henan province, traveling through Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces, and then to the Tibet and Xinjiang Uygur autonomous regions. They usually spend a month in a province.
Zhang Baige shared their stories online. People are touched by their stories. People regarded Zhang Shuangqi and Zhang Baige as “A kind father and a grateful daughter”, they thought Zhang Baige are unfortunate but lucky at the same time.
