Heather and Duarte were friends for three years before they started dating. While teaching abroad in Pakistan, a spark was ignited, flicking their feelings from pals to passion. They've since married and had a baby boy named Gabriel. After recently completing additional degrees back in the US, they decided to give international teaching in Vietnam a shot. A quick video chat later led to new jobs at an international school in Ho Chi Minh City and moving sight unseen. Once they arrived with their two year old in tow, they realized the rental market was as fast paced as the city. Good homes went quick, especially in their 1200 dollar a month budget. To make matters worse, their priorities were split with Heather hankering for a kid friendly flat, and Duarte focused on clean lines and modern design. Find out if they find a place that meets her maternal side and his personal style when House Hunters International gets schooled in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
