We’re on House Hunters International!

I'm excited to finally reveal a secret Michael and I have been working on…. we are going to be on TV! Michael and I filmed an episode of House Hunters International. Our 15 minutes (or 22 minutes for the episode) of fame for HGTV's House Hunters International.

If you've been following this blog for a while you know that my mission is to live life to the fullest, see the world, and collect moments, not things. As cliche as that is, it's true. Almost exactly one year ago, Michael and I, and our two dogs (who will appear on the episode!) packed up our two suitcases and headed abroad to Heidelberg, Germany. We wanted the chance to see Europe, travel, and learn as much as we can.

I'm thrilled to announce that we get to share some of the story and our hopes and dreams on TV!

Full disclosure: before I was asked to be on the show I hadn't seen an episode of House Hunters in my life. I KNOW. I know. But now I totally get it and can see why it's such a fun show to watch. The show does a fantastic job of putting the viewer in the mover's view, allowing you to get a glimpse of the process of moving abroad.

I hope our episode will show that it is possible to move abroad: even with hardships and ups and downs. In the end, it's totally worth it. I can't wait to show you our story, explore our city, Heidelberg, along with us, and witness a key part of our move abroad: finding a place to live!

Tune in to HGTV on Wednesday September 13th at 10:30 PM EST or 9:30 PM CST (episode #11101). It will also play again at 12:30am (1:30 am EST)- so there are two chances to watch! I'd love it if you would use the hashtag #HeleneonHHI so I can follow along with your shares!

Here's the plot: Blogging Away in Heidelberg, Germany

High school sweethearts Michael and Helene have decided to move to historic Heidelberg, Germany. Its central location in Europe is the perfect launching point for their international travels, which they document in their successful lifestyle and travel blog. While they agree on the city, however, Helene and Michael don't agree on the location within the city. Helene wants to find a place in the city center, but Michael wants a suburban spot with room for their two dogs.

I'm so nervous and excited to see it. Can't wait to see it with you! I'll be on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to chat all about it!

Is this episode on Hulu yet? I’d love to watch it!

Just saw the episode, how lucky you are! We lived in near Heidleberg for 16 years and loved every minute of it.

You are so strong woman! You can travel around the world with no regrets and don`t scary any situation on the road. Keep it great.

Very cool! My husband and I moved to England in January 2016 and were also on HHI! We were laughing the entire episode at the editing and our story line. I’m sure you know what I mean and had a similar experience! Enjoy life abroad… and all the random friend request, etc, that come from being on TV for a quick 22 minute program! haha

Just watched it. Loved it 🙂

Oh wow, sounds like so much fun! Well done on your success x

Cool! My mom loves this TV show. But, she didn’t watch it from HGTV, It was another channel. we don’t have HGTV channel on our cable television. I wonder if we could watch you on my mom’s favorite channel (I forgot the name since we like to watch plenty lifestyle channels)

I believe it’s only on HGTV, I could be wrong thogh!

Congrats! I love the show and how exciting you get to be on it and in Europe!!

This is SO COOL! We are all BIG HHI fans, so I will just be so tickled when I see your face pop up! I’m sure you are a TV natural. 🙂

YAY can’t wait to watch!

Yay! This is so fun. My hubby & I love the House Hunters shows so i’ve set this up to record. I can’t wait to watch it and see where you end up. Are you already living in the house?

Ahh how cool!! Can’ you believe I hadn’t see it?!

Ahhhh this is SO COOL!!!! How did you get asked to be on the show?? Is the conflict shown between you and Michael actually real? Did you really disagree on location? Did you already have your apartment whe show was taped? Haha I have a million more questions! Can’t wait to see this episode!

bahaha you’ll have to wait and seeeee!

Legit my favourite show. Definitely going to watch!

Ahh yay!! that’s awesome!

This is SO exciting! When you said tv show this show didn’t even come to mind at all, but makes so much sense now!!)

I don’t have cable so I’ll have to find a way to watch it somewhere, somehow haha.


I know I wish there was a way!!

If you know someone with cable & they’re willing to share their password and you have a streaming device (Apple Tv, Roku) you can log in and watch it on the HGTV app.

Congrats, that’s so exciting!! Side question: Curious what widget you used to show your other posts in that grid format?

Thanks so much! and I actually designed that myself!!

This is so cool Helene! I’ll have to record it, I’m so obsessed with House Hunters!

Ahhh!! I figured that was the show you’d be on! 🙂 I can’t wait to watch!
