Much like with love, when we stop searching we make the best discoveries. You could spend all day dragging a metal detector across the beach, but often it is the person taking a casual stroll that happens upon an unexpected treasure. At least the people on the list below would probably agree with this philosophy, each one found their own unique ‘gems’ at the most random times and in some very odd places.
