Looking to Escape their Grueling Commute, a Family Moves out of Manhattan's Burbs and into Scotland

Before they were married, Donna and Gary loved the conveniences of living in New York City. But after the birth of their second daughter, their living quarters became cramped. And in a city where space was a premium, they couldn't afford to upsize. So like many young families living in Manhattan, the couple were pushed out of the city and into the suburbs. In Westchester County, Gary and Donna bought a large house with a spacious backyard for the kids. But, commuting to their jobs in the city was difficult, and the hour long train ride to and from their offices was taking a toll on family time. So when Gary's company offered a transfer to Edinburgh, Scotland, they jumped at the chance to return to urban life, and reside in an affordable city with reasonable commutes. But when the family landed on UK soil, they realized prices in Scotland's capital were higher than they expected. And getting a downtown apartment with four bedrooms and a garden cost more than their 2,400 dollars a month budget. Find out if they sacrifice size, location or cost when House Hunters International seeks city living in Edinburgh, Scotland.

A Couple from Boston Fear Rocking the Relationship Boat with a Move to St. Thomas

K.J. had a great life and close network of friends in Boston, MA, his home for 16-years. But the city's traffic jams and cold winters were becoming unbearable, and he craved a change of pace and warmer climate. K.J. dreamed of moving to the Caribbean to start a small business, and hoped his girlfriend Kate would come along. When he approached the subject of relocating, Kate threw caution to the wind and agreed, and soon after the couple were bidding farewell to family, friends and their careers. Deciding an American territory was the easiest place to start a business, the duo set their sights on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. But once they arrived, it became clear, they were split on where to call home. Kate wanted beach access and a property on the island's tropical north end. But K.J. disagreed, favoring views and an apartment on the livelier east side. And with no jobs, no home and no resolution in sight, they feared the experience would damage their relatively new relationship. Watch as they navigate rocky terrain in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

Moving to Easter Island to Reconnect With Nature, Family, and The Past at the Edge of the World

Marcus and Alicia fell in love and started a family, but their union is hampered by the presence of a hemisphere between their native homes. The newlyweds moved to Marcus's native Sweden, but have travelled back to Alicia's homeland of Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, with regularity. Now, with a baby in tow, they've decided that Easter Island is just what their family needs. Surrounded by raw nature and centuries of tradition, both Marcus and Alicia agree that a move to Rapa Nui will improve their lives in all the ways that matter most. But like many things, its greatest strengths, rawness and isolation, are also the source of its biggest problems. It's tradition on the Island that only natives can own land, and while Alicia does have a home that she loves on her family's land, Marcus feels that house is unfit for their baby and their business. He insists that they move, but new real estate on the island is nearly impossible to come by. With a grab bag of priorities and only a handful of options, Marcus and Alicia will have to work hard to find middle ground on Easter Island.

Location Lessons in Bangkok, Thailand

Ruth and Todd Richert love almost everything about their native Calgary. They met there, have family there, and its proximity to tons of outdoor activities made it a great place to call home. But, when the point came where the comforts of Canada were too safe of a bet for these thrill seekers, they started to look at ways to shake things up. Todd, a high school math teacher, started to explore how he could do what he loves in a different setting, so when an opportunity to teach in an English language school in Bangkok came up, they both decided this was the change they were looking for. Ruth recently graduated with her Master's degree and won't have a job immediately, so finding a way to occupy her time in Thailand is her priority one. She wants to be in the heart of the action so she can easily explore the city and have plenty to do. Todd would rather live outside central Bangkok in the more relaxed suburbs, which also has the added benefit of being where his school is. Having decidedly different perspectives over where to live is only one of the challenges real estate agent Patricia Lee will have to contend with, as she tries to find them a spacious, two-bedroom apartment on their $700 a month budget. Watch as Ruth and Todd decide whether simple and serene is more appealing than a new experience in a lively location, as House Hunters International explores Bangkok, Thailand.

Tired of California's Crowded Beaches, a Couple Invests in a Surfside Home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico

Married for eight-years, Brunela and Jaime had two girls, five-year old Sol and Mia who's three. They had no complaints about their house in Vista, California but became increasingly frustrated with the area's crowded beaches, especially Jaime, a lifelong surfer. Longing to create special memories for their girls, and looking for a quiet coastal getaway, Jaime and Brunela decided to use their savings to purchase a second home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico. Not only did they hope to have the ocean at their doorstep, but since Brunela was born in Peru, and Jaime's parents were from Chile, spending time in Mexico would also mean exposing the girls to their Latin roots. But once they put their plan in action south of the boarder, they discovered the area's popularity had pushed the average cost of a beachside two-bedroom home above their $150,000 budget. And to make matters worse, Jaime's desire for the perfect surfer's pad clashed with Brunela's fiscal concerns. Find out if they wipe out or catch a wave when House Hunters International rides to Rosarito Beach, Mexico.
