JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Difficulties of packing….

Leave a comment

So for the heck of it, I thought I’d get out my carry-on bags and see how much I can fit into them.  To get an idea for just how much they can hold.  As I said in a previous posting, I will be traveling on both my summer trips (Disney and Croatia) with just carry-on bags.


Holy cow!  This is going to be harder than I thought.  Big time.  I did mention that I tend to be an over-packer.  I usually take a big full size suitcase on a week’s trip.  But that is not an option this time around.  And the Croatia trip is for about a week and a half.  A week and a half in just a carry on bag.  Perhaps I’ll have to wear my pretty platform sandals on the plane so that I don’t need room for them in my bag…. I really don’t see what other option I have.  That way I can get my favorite brown Reef flip flops easily into the carry on.  Or perhaps I should wear several layers of tank tops on the plane, as one of my good friends suggested.  Hmm…. that could work actually.  (Tank top layering is a trendy thing right now…)


I will let you know how it goes when we get closer, but it WILL be a challenge.  Rest assured, I’ll be showing off my fun cute outfits from both trips here on my blog and on FB.  (Plus, I plan to do my usual Disney Trip Report on the Disboards.)

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?
