Wine or Beach in South Africa
After five years, Paul and Ea want to leave Copenhagen and hunt for a home on the Western Cape of South Africa where Paul was born. He plans to start his own business in Cape Town but she has been accepted in an exclusive equestrian academy thirty miles east of the city. Classes start early and the drive in morning traffic can take an hour and a half. She wants a home near the academy. This duel between location preferences is something real estate agent Scott Spicer cannot win but he knows the Western Cape and selects three properties each with unique pros and cons. From the sunny beaches near Cape Town to the vast green winelands to the east, their hunt takes them through the western Cape’s beautiful landscape. Paul’s big fear is ending up in ‘the middle of nowhere.’ Ea fears hours spent in rush hour traffic. She would rather ride a horse.

It seemed like the perfect time to take the leap across the pond for the adventure of a lifetime. But finding a house that fits their needs, their lifestyle, and their budget could cause a showdown between the country folk in Milton Keynes.
