    Visiting beautiful Lake Atitlan for a few days. Went "Village hopping" around the Lake. Ended up climbing a mountain at 3am to watch the sunrise. Stayed at a waterfront hostel for $9 a day. Was so amazing we made a rap about it :)

    Many travelers avoid El Salvador on their way through central America, and it's a mistake. Watch as Mike and Alex explore the world's finest coffee and surfing, have laughs with the locals, and even take the adventure to 20,000 feet overlooking the nations capital. To top it all off, they have an unforgettable time partying in San Salvador and rush to make their 5 am bus!

    Global Degree - Episode 08 - Costa Rica



    Published on Nov 19, 2014
    Central America's most expensive country. Mike & Alex spent one night in San Jose in a rush to get to the Caribbean coast. On the way, they stumbled on a good ol' fashion rodeo. While all the others continued on, the boys stuck around for the festivities and were the only Westerners in the entire city.

    Following the festivities, they carried onto their main destination Tortuguero (which means "Land of Turtles"). At night time, the place was infested with millions of beetles that would swarm every light bulb (a legitimate nightmare for some people).

    After attempting to watch leatherback turtles lay eggs, boating through the jungle, and meeting new friends it was time to head to the last destination of Puerto Viejo. It was a perfect chill spot to pick up surfing, snack on fresh cocoanuts, and enjoy the simple beach life.

    Global Degree - Episode 09 - Panama (Part 1)



    https://youtu.be/_upjWymujB0

    Published on Jan 1, 2015
    Following Costa Rica, the guys head into the city of Bocas Del Toro on the Caribbean side of Panama. Next thing you know, they are hurling themselves naked off a swing in a nightclub with Panama's best surfer: JP. They then meet up with Graham Hughes, the Guinness world record holder as the first person to have traveled all 201 countries without airplanes. He then (somehow) won a private island in a competition held by Samsung.
    Graham showed them the island lifestyle and gave the guys some tips for their world adventure.

    Published on Apr 1, 2015
    The boys head from Montañita Ecuador into Mancora Peru. There they find one of the most spectacular hostels they came across on the five month trip before heading down towards Lima for just one night. Mike was under the weather but Alex managed to find a very promiscuous fashion show at 2 am to help showcase the nightlife. Before making the journey to Machu Picchu they stopped in Ica and toured Tacama, the oldest South American winery dating back to 1540.

    Made it to Cusco, and did the most authentic thing you can do in Peru: Go Bungee jumping :p
    Just kidding, we hit up Machu Picchu and it was such a surreal experience. You must check out Peru!
