Pinoy nurse who works for royal family in Middle East travels the world


An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in the Middle East is living his life to the fullest by traveling the world. Salvador Palma Esguerra Jr., a private nurse for a royal family in Saudi Arabia, has already traveled to Germany, London, Egypt, Dubai, Monaco, Barcelona, and Rome. 

Apart from traveling the world, he also tried several luxury food items. 

In a report, it reported that the Filipino nurse left the Philippines in 2017 in pursuit of greener pasture. 

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon na binigyan ako ng ganitong employer na mabait sinasama ako sa iba’t ibang lugar gaya ng Germany, London, Egypt, Dubai, Monaco, Barcelona, Rome at nakapag Cruise sa ibang lugar,” he said. 

As a private nurse, he works for 12 hours. Although the salary was not that big, his travel allowance is that’s why he was able to build a two-storey house that is set to be finished next year. 

Despite all the glitz and glamour at work, he said that working away from his loved ones is not easy as he had to endure homesickness. 

His wife and two children are in Binmaley, Pangasinan.
