[[Perhaps before I introduce myself, you may wish to understand the navigational intent of my website. The Blog section is a catch-all for blog posts, subdivided into Travelogue (a place for the day-by-day travel posts) and Musings (sort posts about specific topics tied to travel). The Rambling Truths section is for more narrative-based pieces with a strong component of “truths” learned along the way. Wander around for a while~]]
Wow, welcome to my website! You’re probably on this page because you’re curious as to who is responsible for the (brilliant) content on Wanders & Rambles! Or perhaps you want to get to know me before you openly ridicule me? Regardless, you’ve found yourself in the right place!
Greetings, I’m Bre Legan.
I’m a wanderlust-stricken twenty-something with roots in the Midwest. I just graduated Summa Cum Laude from a small liberal arts school, Drury University, where I studied Writing, Graphic Design, and Photography. I used college as a tool to explore various directions in life before picking a vague inclination (and of course, learned a lot about myself and the world in the process).
I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively in the United States, thanks to a family that made travel a priority in raising awesome human beings. We’ve roadtripped to Florida, New Orleans, and all of the states west of Missouri. We’ve also visited a couple small towns in Mexico and much of southwest Canada. On my own, I’ve traveled to Guatemala and various cities in the US. Last summer, I interned in Dharamsala, India, with an international volunteer organization, Cross-Cultural Solutions. I lived and worked in a community of many cultures and traditions, generating content and running social media accounts for CCS. After a few short weeks back in the States, I picked up again and moved to Florence, Italy, where I studied art for the year at Santa Reparata International School of Art. Summer 2017, I completed a three-and-a-half-month backpacking trip across Europe with a good friend of mine. Now, I’ve graduated college and I’m taking one last backpacking trip around Europe before moving to Seattle, WA in the fall to start a Real Adult Job with Alexander Hamilton Scholars. This summer, I’m spending a month in Rome, Italy, studying Islam in the West, followed by two month of travels around Eastern Europe. Some potential goals for my future currently include the Fulbright Program, Peace Corps, United Nations, and a bunch of things I cannot possibly imagine right now.
Obviously, I love travel.
I also love photography, videography, writing, reading, painting, watching documentaries and Wes Anderson films, and perusing YouTube for tutorials on things I will probably never need to know how to do. My outfit of choice includes black t-shirts, outrageous sweaters and jackets, jeans, red shoes, and hats. I am a big fan of aliens, beards, hairless (and hairy) cats, and my pal, Bigfoot. I’m a vegetarian-in-progress and an incessant tripper (not just anyone can say they’ve fallen into the canals of Venice, amirite??). I’m snarky and I laugh too much. I’m allergic to cinnamon.
Oh, and I enjoy learning and enriching human life, and strive to improve the overall human condition.
If you find me endearing (or maybe just pitiful), you should follow along with my wandering and rambling ways!
