Life has a way of taking us in unplanned directions and giving us unexpected experiences. Many of today’s centenarians have led lives of travel, exploration, and unanticipated twists and turns. Their stories often reveal anything but “typical” lives, often taking the road less traveled. Perhaps that is part of what has kept them healthy and active for so long.
