Welcome to FinalJesstination!

Hi there! I’m Jessica, and I started FinalJesstination in 2018. Originally an outlet for sharing half-forgotten photos taken on past travels with friends and family, it has slowly evolved into a way for me to engage with the wider food and travel community.

What's this all about?

At FinalJesstination you’ll find reviews of delicious meals, musings on travels near and far, a recipe or two, and plenty of photos.

Why Dairy Free?

I have been lactose intolerant for as long as I can remember. A few years ago it got so bad I had to remove even the lowest lactose dairy products from my diet. The first few years of learning the dairy free lifestyle ropes was such a struggle, but now I’ve got the hang of it I want to help others navigate this diet too!

A bit About Me

I was born and raised in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C. My undergrad years were spent at a small college in rural Minnesota, with a year abroad in Aberdeen. After a year back in Maryland, I did a digital publishing masters in Oxford. And since 2017 I’ve been living in Milton Keynes, my husband’s hometown.


Throughout it all, three things have have remained constant:


  • My love of good food
  • My desire to experience new places
  • A camera placed squarely in my hands documenting them both

My Logo

The artwork for my logo was lovingly created by one of my best friends, who also happens to be an incredibly talented artist, Jhanai H. Tavoğlu. You can find more of her work on twitter and instagram.
