Lucy Barnard is attempting to set a world record by walking 30,000 km, length of the world, from Argentina to Alaska. If she reaches her goal, the 35 years old Australian will become the first woman to walk that length.

Jano Gibson, writing in ABC News:

“It’s meant to be 30,000 kilometres but with all the to-ing and fro-ing and getting lost and trying to take shortcuts that end up being far longer, I really couldn’t give you a true number,” Ms Barnard said.

There’s just one rule: she can’t use any motorised transport.

The vast majority of the journey is by foot, but several water crossings along the route require a kayak.
