JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Super insane planning syndrome.

I know I’m not alone in being a planner.  There are others out there who are just like me.  I have come in contact with many of them on the

I truly love planning things out – especially trips.  (And especially Disney trips!)  But I think there’s an element of escapism-wrapped-in-practicality when it comes to planning out an upcoming vacation.  Planning gives you something to look forward to.  It almost makes it feel like you’re getting an early start to your trip.  BUT, it’s not just silly daydreaming, because that well-thought out plan will help you make the most of your time and money when you are away.  Win-win!  😉

Even though it’s still four months away, I’m in super high planning mode for my June Disney trip.  I have my restaurant reservations made and have a basic idea of which parks to do on which days.  I’ve already started my handy-dandy color coded itinerary chart and am thinking of new ideas to get more information and pictures taken for my clients and future clients.

Heck, we’ve even been doing the basic “thought-planning” (meaning, nothing written down – yet!) for our big family trip to Disney in 2012.  I want my nieces to fall in love with Disney World on their first trip in the same way that I did.  Aunt Jen will make this a trip they will remember forever!  So naturally, I’ve been throwing all kinds of ideas around in my head already!

And now that I’m helping OTHER people plan their trips, it’s like I get to be in almost constant planning geek mode!  I love it!

One of my favorite quotes is, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I guess I've been a dreamer all my life - I set my sights high and then I try to reach the sky. Some might call me a naive idealist, but that's just the way I am. I believe in always taking the high road, I believe in true love, and I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. If you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! Being the dreamer that I am, I pursued singing as my primary life's calling - I've got two degrees in classical voice under my belt, and I sing just about anything under the sun. I also love a good adventure. Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of world traveling, and have even lived abroad for stretches at a time: mostly in Vienna (Austria) and Croatia. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and I became a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations. (Seriously, I KNOW Disney - I've been going regularly since I was a little girl - and I LOVE it!) And with all my experience traveling and living in Europe, I'm becoming quite the specialist in that travel category as well. (And last year, I started working as a Tour Director in Central Europe!) As to the other juicy details of my life - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, I'm married to an awesome Croatian man named Miloš who is the BEST adventure partner a girl could ask for. (He's also an expert on knowing how to make me smile.) He's truly the love of my life! I've also had all kinds of other jobs along the way, besides singer and travel pro. (Which is pretty standard for those of us who went to school for music.) I've worked part time weekends as a Disney Princess look-alike for children's parties. I've been teaching for almost 20 years, and have lots of experience in retail and customer service. Oh, and I should also probably mention that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings/Star Trek nerd! :-) Let's all go along for an adventure, shall we?
