COME TRAVEL WITH US AND MEET THE LOCALS!


"When you get, give. When you learn, teach!"

Who We Are


We are Traveling Cowboys that produce entertaining travel-related promotional content. We partner with local, travel and maker-businesses. We feature our people, small businesses, unique products, amazing destinations, worthwhile causes, and exciting events.

While we "slow travel" we seek out "local knowledge" of where to eat, where to drink, who to meet, where to stay, and what to do to avoid the typical tourist traps. Through our content, we show you the real people behind the unique maker-type businesses, while we give our opinion about their products and destinations.

Please join us as we entertain you weekly with new stories on our Blog, Social Media and Video channels. We hope that you will share our experiences with us as an armchair traveller or meet us on the road as we introduce you to our places and "our people".

Our Mission


Tourism-related businesses, communities, and entrepreneurs are our patrons and we support them in return. Our promotional value is worth a lot to them. These are people passed over by traditional media and swamped by the online glut. We bring much-needed tourism, customers, and business to their communities because we promote them through our content.

Our goal is to keep the traveller, informed, entertained and educated about the great experiences in unique destinations. At the same time, our aim is to provide an affordable promotional platform for destination and small businesses to meet new customers.

Background


We left the cubicle, stepped off the mortgage train, took the red pill and dropped out of the corporate "rat race" in January 2016. Since then, we've become vanlifers, social entrepreneurs, and digital nomads. Today, we tour North America, Canada, New Zealand and the world while re-inventing the art of living.

Why We Do It


Professionally produced and good online content production cost thousands. It is often out of reach for most tourism associations and small business operators. It means the "real stories" about destinations and their businesses go untold.

We take a novel approach to reduce the cost substantially and put it within reach of businesses, associations, organizations and individual operators to have themselves showcased by the Two Cowboys. At the same time, we bring an alternative perspective to what it means to have " local knowledge" about a destination or business.

We focus relentlessly on producing engaging and entertaining content for anyone that share our interests.

Our people's voices are growing faint in the face of globalization and ever-increasing rules, compliance, and regulation. It is hard being a small business or manufacturer in the western world. Some of our towns are waning and disappearing as a result of it becoming "too hard". The simple principle of successful community is under threat because we are losing our identities and the knowledge of who we are, and who our neighbour is.

We need to know more about the people around us. Those that provide us with our products, food, employment and that take care of our community's needs. We need more information about the world near us.

Our purpose is to showcase the value and role that Producers and makers play in our various communities and society overall. Our people are awesome, and someone needs to tell their stories. By telling their stories, we promote these people, businesses, events, and associations.

People do amazing things. There is a positive Producer story in every town, and we want to tell it. We will share with our audience:
  • Who are these fantastic people?
  • What do they produce?
  • What motivates them?
  • How they started?
  • What keeps them going and inspired?
  • How their communities are involved, and who benefits from what they do?

What We Do


We travel and tell stories through professionally produced and entertaining online content. We are perpetual "slow" travellers and storytellers. See where we've been here on our map.

We are always on the hunt for incredible people, businesses, and places. The people we feature make deli meats, architectural woodworking, beer, chocolate, roasts coffee, cereal, ice cream, software, tools, and much, much more. Our community news cover events, markets, and small businesses. We produce content weekly. 

The people, businesses, events, and associations we feature benefit from an enormous amount of marketing and promotional exposure from the Two Cowboys through:
  • Video: See here.
  • Photography and Blogging: See here.
  • Social Media: See here.
  • Shopping: See here.
  • Experiences: See here.
  • Online Reviews.
All the proceeds from our earnings are plowed straight back into covering our costs for travelling and promoting local communities and Producers.

We will be travelling, meeting, eating, learning, and producing stories about our journey. You will be able to track our progress on this site, and through our YouTube channel: Two Cowboys & A Camera and Facebook Page. With our help you learn about inspiring businesses, the people behind them and their amazing destinations.

See you on the road.
Two Cowboys!
