Wow, this is an amazing look at luxury home ownership in Japan. Can you imagine living in this palace? OMG, it is fantastic! Maybe it’s my movie watching habits, but I have always been fascinated by Japan and the Japanese people. I love the sense of refinement and good taste that you find there. It is so appealing and beautiful. Wow, is all I can say! Haha.

I have never traveled to the Philippines, but this site is making me wish I could settle down there! Unfortunately, for those of us that aren’t Filipino, it’s not possible to become true land-owners, but you can  buy a condo or invest in other types of properties where you aren’t getting an actual “piece of dirt” to call your own. Still, if you are reading this and you are Filipino, this is a no-brainer!


The name of this gorgeous sanctum can be translated from the Spanish as “beautiful refuge”, and this breath-taking residential paradise will welcome you home each day to a private and spacious, master-planned community. This is high quality Philippine real estate located right in the middle of the dynamic Daang Hari area, Bellefort village offers generous outdoor living space through its unique Linear Parks and Enclaves.

Idyllic Waterfall In Brazil

At my sidewalk table, I smile to myself, and hoist my glass for another sip. Full-bodied German beer, a tidy Mayberry-esque town square across the street…and gauchos in full regalia passing by.

Sometimes it’s still hard to believe I’m in Brazil.

And in fact, the locals proudly refer to their little slice of heaven as Outro Brazil: “Another Brazil.”

Stretching east to west across Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil’s southernmost state, the Serra Gaucha (“Cowboy Highlands”) is a delightful little enclave reminiscent of the rolling hills of the Great Smoky Mountains of my native North Carolina.

And like the North Carolina mountains of 50 years ago, this area is just being discovered. Brazilians from Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre are coming in droves to visit, and many are buying second homes here. There is just something welcoming about these hills, an indescribable attraction. After years in Rio, I recently relocated here, and already feel very much at home.

Canela, my new home, has a quiet, relaxed, family atmosphere. While fairly flat and easy to navigate on foot, quite nearby are three parks sporting canyons, waterfalls, rivers, and hiking trails. Caracol Falls is picture perfect.

Canela, in recent years, has become a regional center for ecotourism. And Gramado, just 3.5 miles away, is her chicer sister. During every season, you can come here to enjoy regular festivals and celebrations. Gramado is also the place to buy knits and leather goods….

If You Aren’t Ready To Move Here, You’re Probably Dead…


With stress-melting coral-sand beaches, warm tropical seas, an eclectic mix of welcoming locals and friendly expats, and international dining, the Dominican Republic epitomizes the laidback, sun-kissed lifestyle the Caribbean is known for. And you don’t have to be rich to buy a home here. I explored two up-and-coming beach towns, Cabarete and Las Terrenas, which offer exceptional Caribbean island value; you’ll find newer condos starting at $100,000, sometimes even less. Even better, many properties on these sumptuous stretches of coast will cover all your ownership costs and could even make you a profit. This is among the very few places left in the Caribbean where you can buy affordable, quality properties and take advantage of a robust rental market.
