Or the female business exec who bought a place in another country and had only managed to visit once in 3 months. Why bother to buy a house so far away?
Did anyone see Emily's (the last Design Star winner) show Saturday night? I watched the beginning and fell asleep.
But I also find it interesting that NEW construction seems to look pretty much the same wherever in the world they focus on. Doesn't matter if it's extremely expensive or lower priced, when these people in exotic countries are taken to look at new construction -- whether homes or big condo buildings-- you can almost never guess from looking at the buildings or the interiors - what country or what part of the world they're in. It's such a shame that so often nowadays, the local ethnicity and characteristics of homes in all these parts of the world are not really being preserved and carried on any more --- everything is slowly becoming so homogenized.
I really liked the House Hunters International last night with the young couple trying to buy a home in Bulgaria. He was from Ireland and he had enough money left over to open an Irish pub. Loved that it was not a millionaire looking for a multimillion dollar property in Belize. I too prefer to see how regular people live in other countries.

House Hunters International is sort of my guilty pleasure/escape. I like to see vacation homes and then marvel at how much they cost and how little you get for the money! It's fun seeing the homes and the scenery.
I'm with you Minney, I often wonder how the heck these people are financing the two homes or the ones who completely uproot their entire lives and move to another country. How do they do that?
