Season 79, Episode 6

Shaken But Not Stifled In Christchurch, New Zealand

Fresh out of college and in a new relationship, Brooke and Chandler love to travel. New Zealand was on their bucket list when good fortune hit Chandler's international job hunt. As a structural engineer, he could not have a better opportunity to see firsthand what an earthquake can do to buildings than in Christchurch, New Zealand. A series of strong quakes ravaged the city in 2010 and 2011, causing catastrophic damage and loss of life. Now, years later, much of the damage remains as residents try to pick up the pieces. They have a dire need for ways to make buildings more quake resistant, and Chandler is just the guy for the job. He's an avid biker and wants to be close enough to his new job to cycle to work. His girlfriend Brooke wants that too, but housing in the damaged city red zone, where they both will be working is hard to come by since the quakes, so they may have to settle for less to be close by, or have to rethink their commute in order to find a nicer place outside the city.
