House Hunters BIGGEST Adventure Josh, Sarah and Nine Kids "To Italy and Beyond"
"Josh and Sarah Brown fell in love with Italy during their European honeymoon fifteen years ago. Now they've decided to leave behind their fast paced lifestyle in Indiana and return to the peaceful region of Veneto, Italy. Except this time, they're bringing along their nine children. Finding a home to accommodate eleven people in the small villages that dot the countryside is a huge challenge for real estate agent Sabine, and the family's tight budget might leave them bursting at the seams. See if the Browns can find their dream home on the biggest House Hunters International adventure yet." - HGTV
Our Story It was only a year ago when My husband and I gathered our eight kids together and announced that we were planning a trip to Italy to find a new place to live. I was expecting a new baby in December, so we had to get serious about moving. In September Josh and I brought the two oldest children with us to go “House Hunting” in Italy. While we were in the process of deciding to move to Italy we were contacted by one of the producers of the HGTV Show “House Hunters International”.
The producers wanted to film our adventure for their show – I thought the offer was some kind of scam. It wasn’t a scam. They were serious. Friends and strangers have often asked us when our family of 11 would be on Reality TV. We used to laugh, but now we can tell you that the TV show is set to run Feb 26, 2014!
In October we sold the 15 passenger van, got visas, had a good bye party, rented out our house in Indiana, Packed up half a ton of luggage and boarded an Airplane. We crossed the ocean while we were sleeping. We arrived in Italy on November 1st. Baby Ember was born 6 weeks later. After living in the apartment in Montebelluna for a few months we were ready to go house hunting again.
House Hunters International met us at the Train Station in Montebelluna, Italy. They followed us around for FOUR days of filming. They filmed our family dragging "half a ton" of luggage out of the train station. Read More
