This 5-year-old has already been to 6 continents


She is just 5 years old and this bubbly little girl has already visited 6 of the 7 continents in the world. Moreover, she is the youngest member of United MileagePlus, a frequent-flyer programme. Celine can only be your envy if the mundane routine work is standing in the way of your dreams to travel across the world.

While the children of her age are learning rudimentary alphabet kindergarten, Celine is busy travelling and has visited 6 continents, which include 14 countries and 42 cities. She has fled close to 2,50,000 miles on more than 150 United flights.

The United airlines has released a video, in which Celine and her parents Ryan Carlson and Shauna Carlson are seen enjoying their holidays in various countries, to celebrate the entry of its youngest United MileagePlus member. According to Ryan, as mentioned in the video, Celine boarded her first flight, from San Francisco to Chicago, when she was nine months old. Ryan and Shauna took their daughter to far-off places to cultivate in her the importance of travelling and instil a sense of adventure.

Celine's favourite travel destination is Paris in France. She loves to draw during long-haul flights across continents, and has visited many sought-after tourist spots in Brazil, New Zealand, Cape Town in South Africa, Switzerland and Europe. Celine and her parents are premier members of United's Royalty Programme as per the numbers of 2018.

"Travelling is important to know about one's self and others' abilities, and this is an important phase in everyone's life. We don't inform Celine about out travel destination. If she gets that information beforehand she will create her own perspective. Celine can have new experience about a place on her own and this augurs well for the future," says Ryan.

Her first task after checking into a hotel room in a new place is to hop up and down on the bed.

The family is planning to visit Africa and Asia this year.
