In this episode we catch back up with Lucy Barnard and Wombat from Tangles and Tail as they make their way from the bottom of South America to the top of North America. This 30,000 km journey will take Lucy around 5-6 years to complete and if successful, she will be the first women to do so.
The last time we caught up with Lucy was in September 2019 when she was just about to enter Ecuador. Now it’s been four months since we last chatted with Lucy and she has completed just on 10,000 km. Today we catch up with her in Tulcan, Ecuador in early March 2020 as she is just about to start her last leg in South America entering Colombia before progressing on to Central America.
