The title says it all. Since September 2020 we have been traveling around New Zealand after finishing our 2nd lockdowns (only in Auckland and the rest of NZ are covid free in the community since May 2020) and yes our hardwork by following the rules paid off and now we are all experiencing a much loved freedom that others don’t have at the moment. We are now covid free in the community for a very long time now.

Please come and check it out and if you have more time to check my Youtube channel Pinoyswiss abroad that would be great and you can see more recent travel videos there with commentaries and travel information with a little bit of history. Curious? please check it out NOW. Thank You for your time! Cheers!

Abu Dhabi at a Quick Glance


I summarized a few events in our expats years while living in the beautiful capital of the UAE which is Abu Dhabi. Some of you dear readers may think that Dubai is the capital… you are so wrong. It is Abu Dhabi and it’s big brother who helped Dubai to where they are at now, a shining star from the tourists perspectives.

Please try to watch this video thru my Youtube channel PinoySwiss Abroad as per this LiNK. I would really like you to like, comment and do share all my videos to your friends and families if possible. The more the merrier and you are helping me getting some views please that would be much help! This is my passion. I have so many other travel stories to share even in these tough times. We are currently living in our home country New Zealand and soon will travel domestically around the country to help the economy and communities. Something to blog about… sounds like a brag haha! pardon me.

Thank You so much for reading and watching!

Auckland back to lockdown level 3

Please visit PinoySwiss abroad Youtube channel and subscribe thank you!

“If safety is a joke, then death is the punchline”

Paul Laforest

It was like a slap in the face getting back to quarantine lockdown level 3 in Auckland after 102 days of being covid-free country in the world. Perhaps we really cannot maintain this until we really close the border and that means rejecting even your own countrymen. They have the right to come home after all… but by no means FOLLOW the rules!! (which are some of them didn’t do which is utterly dissapointing).

UPDATE: As of today August 25th the PM announced that we will be back to level 2 so that’s some sort of freedom with a face mask and social distancing and fewer people attending an events. It is good enough so Aucklander’s should be able to abide by it.

PS: Please try to view the video on my YOUTUBE channel. Please like, share and subscribe to support me. It is free and more vlogs to come your way. Thank you so much!

Expat family pre-covid holiday!

“Opportunity knocks only once. You’ll never know if you’ll get another opportunity.”

Leon Spinks

I was naive of what will happen that time. Of what to expect. It was full of surprises, adventures, luxuries that I never experienced before, happiness and sometimes loneliness being an expat. One thing I know now… it comes once in a lifetime. I don’t think it may happen again for me. So when your chance comes in… try to enjoy the most of it and seek to be alive and do wonderful things. Our world nowadays is not the same as before. Stay safe everyone!

Please WATCH LIKE & SUBSCRIBE on my YOUTUBE channel that would make me happy and will be grateful for your support. Thanks in advance.
