A 46-year-old Australian woman arrived at Arichalmunai near Dhanushkodi from Sri Lanka today in her canoe as part of her effort to visit as many countries as possible in the world.

Speaking to reporters, Santro Robson Heya claimed that she had visited 12 countries including Germany and Egypt in a paddle-boat and she aimed to find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records by visiting as many countries as possible.

Indian Coast Guard personnel in hovercraft and helicopter provided security to her from the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) up to Dhanushkodi, officials said.

Dhanushkodi is town at the southern tip of Rameswaram island on the eastern coast of the Tamil Nadu.

She would leave from Mandapam near here tomorrow and go to Mumbai in the canoe.
