From crowded airports to hectic business trips, travel can lead to stress, which is detrimental to the body. But there are plenty of physical and mental benefits of vacations and holidays, especially as people age. Best friends Louisa Mattson and Francy Hays are spending time traveling around the world as they near retirement. For Louisa, taking international trips to nature trails and vineyards is her way of staying healthy and free of stress, while Francy is making new life changes that include more activity and taking more time away from her busy work schedule. We'll follow these friends from stateside to the Italian countryside as they explore new terrain and enjoy some much needed R&R. Our focus on health and travel also takes us to the sky as we see how flight crews react to inflight medical emergencies and the ground teams that guide them.
