Hello. My name is Ada. Welcome to my blog!

That's me in Hida Takayama!

Travel in Boots was created in 2014 three months after I moved to Japan. I wanted to highlight my slow pace travels around Japan and my new life as a Pinay military spouse working as an ALT.

    Hi Ada, I just recently subscribed to your blog,and I am very happy to see a fellow Filipina who I can relate too. I am currently working on how to make my own blog and hopefully I can share my experiences as well in the near future. I am currently living in China, working as a kindergarten ESL teacher, I just recently moved in for a few weeks. I have a fiance who was in the ARMY in USA and now he is also working here in China but he is far from the province where I work and live. My first choice is Japan, I’ve been there, I had read few of your blogs about it. I want to know how to apply there, because me and my fiance are planning to move next year either to South Korea or Japan, I also want to work there as an English teacher, and after my contract ends here, I am hoping I can move to Japan. I’m glad I found your blog, it inspires me so much. I can relate to your blog because we have the same nationality. Thanks so much..

      Hello Ana! I’m very happy that you found my blog too! I hope to blog more topics that would help people like us in the same situation, feel free to share your blog here. China always interests me and hopefully visit it someday. I love Japan deeply and adventures and possibilities are endless. Since you’re already working as an Esl teacher, I’m pretty sure it’ll be very easy for you to find a job here in Japan and South Korea. I personally haven’t been to South Korea but hey, I think Japan will suit you better!
