JenSop: The Singing Travel Pro!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Vienna, My City of Dreams!

Yes, that title is a play on words with the famous song!  (And for those who don’t know the song, go Google or Youtube it!)

So today I got out and about some more.  I had tea with a lovely couple that I met when I visited two years ago, then I got out and enjoyed a wonderful sunny afternoon in the city.

As you all know, in addition to being a singer, I’m also a travel agent!  I know I may specialize in Disney, but I also love getting out and traveling everywhere – AND increasing my knowledge on all the great places in this world.  (Learning and exploration keep my busy mind happy!)

This is not only my third visit to Vienna, but also, at almost two months, my longest.  I’m getting to know the city not just as a tourist, but as a short-term resident as well.  This is truly the “City of Music!”  It’s also a city of beautiful architecture, art, history, and well….food!  Haha!  There’s a reason why I chose to live in this city during my audition tour – Vienna has a certain something about it – a certain pull that immediately makes you feel at home.

And if you EVER go to Vienna, I will be more than happy to help you see the city for everything it has to offer!

Here are some pics from my afternoon walk!

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 this year, I've 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 engaged 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?
