JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

The View From Above


Yesterday, we flew back to the States for a work seminar, which starts tomorrow.  Fortunately, we were able go back a day early so I could grab my car from Pennsylvania; to be able to drive it up to Connecticut for the seminar.

The route our plane took us gave us some breathtaking views, with the sky still alight during the nautical twilight.  The first noteworthy portion highlighted some beautiful clouds and cloud patterns below us.

Then we flew over the bottom of Greenland: the coastline speckled with little icebergs, which contrasted with the majestic fjords jutting up from the water’s edge.  Seriously stunning.  I did a tad bit of research, and even though most of Greenland is flat, there is a narrow area of rocky mountainous coastline along the eastern shore.  These peaks and cliffs are called the Watkins Range, with the highest mountain being Gunnbjorn’s Fjeld, which is the highest point in the Arctic at 3,694 meters (12,119 ft).

I took a ton of pics and wanted to share some with you.  I do LOTS of flying for work, but this was one of the most picturesque flights I’d ever taken.

I hope you enjoy my photos!  (You can click on the individual photos to see them enlarged.)


The first few photos are of the gorgeous cloud patterns over the ocean:



Next, we have Greenland!  How amazing!  We were at full cruising altitude, which means these mountains must be huge!


Then, we came in over Canada, always chasing the twilight side of sunset.

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?

  1. Hi Jen and Milos. Hi from Ireland. My wife and I are part time naturists who enjoy nude swimming after a nice hike. We do this often in Ireland all year around and also when on holiday in Europe. Really enjoyed your videos of beautiful remote Croatian nude beaches and your honest and funny commentaries. Please keep them coming. If interested you can join in International Naturist Federation (INF) open group on FB. And do let us know if you are ever in Ireland and we will happily recommend some beautiful nude beaches

    • Thanks, Colin! Always glad to hear about other folks enjoying the nude beaches for what they actually are! I suspect it would be rather chilly to swim in Ireland – please correct me if I’m wrong! Haha! Glad you’re enjoying our videos! 🙂

  2. Jen, only one way to find out about nude beaches and swimming in Ireland 🙂
