JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

More Vienna…

Today was another lovely sunny day.  Not quite as warm as Sunday, but very nice nonetheless.

I took a walk into the Inner City. (And helped a woman and her son find their way there too.  They were in Vienna just for an overnight and were from Australia.  I know how happy I’ve been during my travels when I get help from kind souls helping me get to where I need to go.  The least I could do was pass it along to someone else!)

I basically just walked around for awhile, took some pictures, and drooled over pretty clothes and shoes in the stores that I couldn’t afford – haha!

One of my stops was Doblinger’s – a music store that should never be missed.  It’s a great place to just page through music scores and collections, or reference books.  One side of the store is classical and the other side is more contemporary.  It’s located on a little narrow street, just off of the Graben.  I spent a good amount of time just looking through the different stuff they had in stock.

Here are some pics from today’s 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 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?
