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)
  • 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)

  • Ice cream from the legendary Brynja Ice Cream In Akureyi. Made with milk not cream like typical ice cream. #akureyi #icecream #icelandicicecream #iceland #JFJSiceland2014 #eeeeeats (at Brynja, Akureyi)

  • Much different lava fields than Leirhnjúkur, Dimmuborgir fields are bursting with life. Mount Hverjfall is in the background (a MASSIVE crater). #lava #autumn #Dimmuborgir #hverjfall #myvatn #iceland #icelandadventures #JFJSiceland2014 (at Dimmuborgir )

  • 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)

  • Akureyi…often referred to as the Capital in the North. Sits at the base of snow capped mountains and on the water. I could get used to being here #akureyi #bláakannan #architecture #JFJSiceland2014 (at Bláa Kannan)

  • I think we wound up on Mars today. Hverir is the most other worldly place I’ve ever been. #hverir #myvatn #kraflavolcano #fumaroles #iceland #icelandadventures #JFJSiceland2014 (at Hverir)

  • Sailing back in to Húsavík after whale watching #húsavík #whalewatching #ships #harbor #iceland #icelandadventures #JFJSiceland2014 (at Húsavík)

  • Had the honor of encountering two humpback whales today!! Dream come true for me (if you know me or followed me long enough you know I love them so much I have a tattoo of one). #whalewatching #humpbackwhales #húsavík #northsailing #iceland #icelandadventures #JFJSiceland2014 (at Húsavík)

  • @justinscott at Selfoss. A giant u-shaped waterfall upstream of Dettifoss. There’s a draught and the side we chose to see (which was a way more difficult hike) was the side that was dry so we got incredible views of all the falls on the other side that normally we wouldn’t have been able to see so close. #iceland #icelandadventures #hiking #selfoss #waterfall #JFJSiceland2014 (at Selfoss)
