An Interview With Judy Jenkins

How many years have you been selling travel?

I have been in the industry since 1981. Started out in the accounting departments of the airlines. In 1986, I began working as a ticket agent and then in 1989 I became a Travel Agent. The combined experience has proven to be very beneficial.

What are your hobbies?

Without hesitation my favorite pasttime is fishing. Ice fishing in winter and Salmon fishing in summer. Also, I enjoy snowmobiling, gardening, and reading. Of course, you would be expecting me to say travel, however,I don't consider travelling a hobby...it's a benefit or perk that comes with the job.

What type of resort activities do you favor? ie water sports, lounging by the pool, etc?

Fishing Excursions..just kidding (LOL). To be honest, I do like to lounge. After travelling to the all inclusive resorts so many times in the Caribbean, I've "been there and done that" in respect to off site activities and excursions. Now, the only thing on the agenda is Sun, Sand, and Relaxation. In recent years I've become a bit more adventurous in my travels...Italy, Scotland, Australia,England, Spain, Ireland, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Greece and most recently Portugal and the Azores. You have to experience as much as possible and cross it off your bucket list. I LOVE to explore City Sights on bicycle tours (London, Sydney, Barcelona, Nice), I've Hot Air Ballooned over Australia, drank wine overlooking the Tuscany valleys, experinced the Gondola in Venice, walked the wall in Dubronik, Croatia,attended a mass at The Vatican (Not even Catholic..but the experience was sooo spiritual) ,rode the Eye in London, walked the streets that " Jack the Ripper" stalked, toured Edinburgh Castle in Scotland visited the 19th hole at St Andrews golf course, toured a bull ring in Barcelona,visited Casino Royale in Monte Carlo, kissed the Blarney Stone, Toured the Almafi Coastline, walked in footsteps of fallen soldiers on Juno Beach, taken the Bernina Express thru the Swiss Alps, visited the Accropolis, watched the sun set in Santorini and get this..(my all time favorite)..Scuba Dived on The Great Barrier Reef. Not to Brag...but hey..LOVE MY JOB...hehehe

What are your favorite destinations?

Of all the places I've been My favorite destination has been the Danube River cruise..starting in Budapest (beautiful), cruising thru Austria and ending in Germany. Motorcoach Touring Italy runs a close second. Next on my Bucket list is another river cruise on the Rhine..or perhaps a water bungalow in Bora Bora?? OH MY!! Decisions, decisions :))

What languages do you speak?

English, Scottish, Irish, and Australian (hehe), but I can also say Hello and Thank You in Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese..

Do you have a family? and if so what type of family travel have you done?

Currently I am an empty nester. My 2 daughters are grown. I am very proud however to boast being a grandmother. My world centers around my grandchildren. I expect that my travels will come full circle with taking them to Disney, and Family All Inclusives, just as Ive done with my 2 daughters. Bucket List again..Disney Cruise :))
