Hi there! I'm Sarahmarie ("Passport"), and I'm an English teacher, a writer, a crocheter, a traveler, an AT thru-hiker in 2019, and a person who is very bad at concise intros. I grew up in Kentucky but I've also lived in Atlanta, Georgia and Flagstaff, Arizona, with assorted adventures traipsing abroad. I've hiked the Camino Francés, Camino del Norte, and Camino Primitivo in Spain, as well as the John Muir Trail in California. I've been working towards a thru-hike of the AT for many years, and I am so excited to be out here this year. I love a lot of things, including, but not limited to: languages, bagels and cream cheese, books, bookstores, stickers, dogs, and obsessively watching my favorite shows over and over. I am loving life out here on this glorious, sweaty trail and I look forward to learning more from my fellow hikers as I move north!
