Joenroute

Hey there! Im Joe (the one on the right). Im an avid traveler, teacher, reader, and writer. I currently live in Hanoi, Vietnam and work as a part-time English teacher and web designer. Before, I used to live in Shanghai for around 4 years, learning Chinese Mandarin, teaching and working on startup projects. If Im not riding my trusty motorbike through crazy traffic you can find me at a local cafe working on sites, editing, proofreading or writing content. Joenroute.com is mainly a place where I write about my experiences in cities and countries that Ive been too, as well as my life as an English teacher. Feel free to get in touch!

Our Traveling Zoo

We are a husband (Shon) and wife (Jenia) writing about the excitement of working, living, and traveling with family, both abroad and at home in the United States. We've been teaching overseas more or less since 2012, when we started with ADEC in the UAE, and we've lived and worked in Russia, spent a year back in the USA, and are now in south China. While living abroad we have welcomed two lovely little monsters into this wondrous world, and we've gone from having tidy, fast-paced adventures to having the kind of slow, sloppy ones that a family experiences together.

Zarbaraki

I came to Japan after graduating with a social science degree and an anxious sense of "what do I do with my life?". Somehow I'm still here and haven't yet figured it out. This blog ranges from my experiences on the JET program, where I was placed in Ibaraki prefecture in 2013, to where I currently am: a salarywoman in Tokyo. This blog is a collection of my embarrassing misadventures and is in the tone of "the voice in your head" in the key of "a whiny sarcastic British person".
