JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Counting down…

(General ramblings….)

So I was noticing that these final days of my countdowns feel like they’re going both fast and slow at the same time.

Going fast, because with both trips they seemed rather far away at the initial planning stages.  This particular Disney trip has literally been three years in the planning.  Now it’s literally almost here. And it was in March that we started planning me coming to Croatia to spend some of Miloš’ vacation with him.  And now it’s 24 days away!  (Not that I’m counting or anything… haha!)

Both trips feel SO close, but this final stretch is suddenly feeling like it’s taking forever!  And my poor friends (in person and especially on FB) are dealing with my constant posts and blabbering about them!  (Sorry folks – I simply cannot hold in all my excitement and enthusiasm! 🙂  )

In the meantime, I’m spending any free time I get outside working on my tan.  Gotta get some good base color before both of these sun-filled trips.  And our insane heat wave here in the northeast is getting my blood ready for the super hot climates I’ll be headed to.  (And with several of my clients traveling to Disney at the same time as my trip, I’m spending time reviewing and checking over everything to make sure everyone’s stuff is all in order.)

Isn’t it great how having something awesome to look forward to can push aside any kind of negative mood that tries to creep in?  I’ve been dealing with some intense stress lately, and looking forward to these trips makes me realize that it’s SO much better to focus on the happy things in life.  Cause I’ve got lots of happy all around me, which is awesome!  😀

Okay now, calender – let’s get a move on!  Hahaha!

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?
