Described as “the 20th century’s most footloose traveler," Alexandra David-Néel (1868-1969) saw a lot in her 100 years. She crossed the Alps, cycled through Europe (when bikes were wild and new), and studied Hinduism in India and Buddhism in China. She left her husband for Tibet and then returned home to France after 14 years, where she built a Tibetan-style fortress and wrote some of the most essential travel books ever. As she approached 70, she went back on the road.
