Hiya Hikers! In the Spring of 2021, I sold almost all of my possessions, including my condo and wheels. Then I resigned from my career in bank management and set off on my AT Thru-Hike, which I completed December 5th 2021. I'm now in England, spending time with my grandparents here and figuring out my next adventure. Thanks for reading and if you'd like to follow along on my adventures, please follow me on IG @annemariesphere.
