Five Zoomer couples embark on journeys as unique as they are, each one designed to engage in an activity to extend and explore the limits of ageing and ultimately, to keep them young.
We’ll join them as they reveal the secrets of billion-dollar research centres from India to California, swim in a sacred cenote in the Yucatan jungle, divine the tantric arts on the beaches of Cap d’Agde, push their bodies to the limits of endurance in St. Lucia and dance the night away in Spain.
From highfalutin, to folksy, to just plain flakey, each trip will challenge the voyaging couple to transform themselves and everything we believe we know about aging.
