JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Dog days of summer…

This insane heat wave in the northeast is making it feel like we’re in southern Florida lately.  The Graf Pond is so warm on the top layer, jumping in feels like taking a hot bath.  The humidity makes the air feel thick, and makes it hard to breathe.

It feels weird not to be heading to Disney this summer, but hopefully I’ll get there sooner than later for my next trip.  In the meantime, I’m living vicariously through all of my Disney clients going down there during these couple of months.

I’m continuing with my packing, and getting excited for heading overseas.  I can’t reveal the exact date we’re leaving, for family privacy reasons.  (My parents don’t want people to know exactly when we’ll be gone.)  But I CAN tell you that at the end of July, I’ll be arriving in Croatia – just a few hours before  Miloš – we’ll be meeting at the Zagreb airport and then heading to his town of Crikvenica for a day before heading to Makarska and Split for almost two weeks.  (Followed by a week together back in his hometown.)  When it’s time for him to head back to his ship, I’ll be heading up to Vienna for a few days to visit some of my friends there.

Even though it’s technically “summer,” it feels like the “real summer,” MY real summer, is not quite here.  It’s ALMOST here – but not quite.  But soon.  Really soon.  I can’t wait.

p.s.  yeah, i totally made up that calendar I was talkin’ about in the last post!  🙂

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?
