Backup to a remote Time Capsule

I want to buy a Time Capsule and leave it in my parents home. This way, when I back up to it from my apartment and while on the go, I will have a remote storage center without the fees.

Can a Time Capsule do this?

Basically, I want to know if the Time Capsule has a not too complicated way to connect to it through the internet (as opposed to requiring you to be on the same network) via AFP or something like that.

Also, would it make a difference if the Time Capsule is directly connected to my modem vs just acting as an access point behind another router? How do I get around the first router to let the service though (if there is one)?

It's a little complicated, but the setup in my parents home requires a modem in one spot of the house but the wireless network to be broadcasted from another spot.
