On February 14, 2017 Sydney International Airport was busy with travellers flying out for the usual jaunts - a ski trip to Japan, a quick week in Bali, a tramping trip to New Zealand. Lucy Barnard was among the travellers that day, but she was heading out for a different type of excursion. Sitting in an airport coffee shop, with her mum and two of her closest friends, Lucy waited out the minutes until she would go through security to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
