I'm Jesika...I'm an artist, baker, super nerd with a passion for animals, wildlife, and nature. This was my study abroad travel blog turned everyday blog. I post photos from my life, my baking, my art work, and ones I find or reblog which will probably revolve around:
•Travel and Nature
•Food/Baking photography and recipes
•Artists and photographers find inspiring
•Animals (especially marine ones)
•My fansoms (doctor who, sherlock, supernatural, LotR, ASoIaF, GoT...just to name a few

(side note: although I always give credit where it's due and link, if I ever post a photo of yours and you'd like it taken down simply let me know and I'll delete it. Header image by Stephane Vetter)

  • Djúpalónssandur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. These lifting stones were used to test the strength of fishermen from hálfdrættingur (“weakling”) up to fullsterkur (“full strength”). @justinscott did not make it to fullsterkur.

  • At about the three hour mark of our road trip today. Sometimes you have to find ways to amuse yourself like pulling off the road to run into a field and take pictures with seal signs #landofseals #iceland #icelandadventures #roadtrip #JFJSiceland2014 (at Land of Seals)

  • Justin at Leirhnjúkur lava fields with Krafla volcano in the background. These entire fields are cooled lava, but some areas are still spouting steam and you could feel the warmth through your shows #Leirhnjúkur #kraflavolcano #lava #myvatn #iceland #icelandadventures #hiking #JFJSiceland2014 (at Leirhnjúkur Lava Fields)
