Drew Binsky, who’s been to 161 countries himself, recently conducted an interview with a 99-year-old traveler named Vincent Leville, a native of Brooklyn. In the video (above), a still-spry Leville welcomes Drew into his home to share stories from his extensive travels, which have taken him to 60 countries. He talks about having the Mona Lisa to himself in the Louvre, Cuba as his favorite country and what it was like to travel for leisure (and on sailing ships, on which he worked) in the 30s, 40s and 50s.

It’s just five-and-a-half minutes and a nice watch.
