JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Just a little jaunt around town…

Today the sun was out, and even though it was cold, I was going to get some of those rays.  I leave Saturday for Croatia, and thought I’d make a quick trip to the OEBB office at Landstraβe to make sure I didn’t need a reservation.  When traveling during the day via train, all I have to do is jump on any train and go.  (Because I have a Global Rail Pass, which allows me unlimited train travel.  Night trains require a reservation.)  But since I’d be traveling on a weekend, I wanted to be sure that the train wasn’t showing as full already or anything – in case I needed to reserve an actual seat.  The girl working there checked for me, and it came up as showing that there were many many seats available, so no reservation would be needed.

Since that was all taken care of, I decided not to take the UBahn back and to just walk for a little.  The Stadtpark (city park) is right near there, so I decided to take a short detour and venture into the park for a little bit.  The birds were out in full force at the pond in the park, and there were a spattering of people out sitting or walking along the paths.

Here are some pics from today…

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?
