Beach Battle in Punta del Este, Uruguay

When Tim and Eric adopted Ignacio and Eva, they made a commitment to connect the kids to their own Latino heritage. After an exhaustive search, they decided on the coastal country of Uruguay and the beachfront resort town of Punta del Este. Eric’s freewheeling nautre is pushing them them to live right on the water but Tim is a bit more reserved in wanting a family friendly home that is safe, sound, and setback from the surf. They both may need to adjust their mindsets in order to find something in the city known as “the Pearl of the Atlantic.”

Tuesday 8/9:

Behooved to Move

Sarah loves animals, sometimes more than people. And she loves life on her family farm in Poway, California. But she wants to become a a vet, and time away at school in Glasgow, Scotland, is the only road there. Her mom Liz is supportive in every way, including footing the bill. But that support comes along with her many opinions, and needless to say, Sarah and mom rarely agree. School starts soon and available apartments are filling up. Sarah doesn’t want to go at all, but if she wants to get through vet school and get home soon, she’ll have to find a way to balance mom, school, and homesickness and makes Glasgow a home for the year.

Wednesday 8/10:

Love the Way You Liberia

After studying abroad in Costa Rica in college, Matthew developed a love for the culture, language and people, which he hoped to one day share with his wife Elizabeth.  Several years of working busy, stressful jobs in Illinois has taken its toll, and this adventurous couple has decided to spread their wings and fly south to Liberia, Costa Rica.  Matthew will need to be close to the airport in order to travel for work, while also making sure he has solid internet connection.  But Elizabeth has needs of her own; a recent diagnosis of celiac disease limits her dining options, so a big kitchen with new appliance is of primary importance.  Finding everything on their wish list won’t be easy as “House Hunters International” gets a taste of Pura Vida in Liberia, Costa Rica.

Thursday 8/11:
