The WPGUK would like to introduce their new Guild Member Travel Agent Ian Hughes from Travel Counsellors
I’m 31 years old and live in Liverpool, Merseyside, a place I love no matter where I travel to. I have a great love of football, film and music, and often attend festivals to see my favourite bands. My friends and family play a huge part in my life and I love meeting new people and finding out about their lives, which is why working as a Travel Counsellor is a perfect career for me. Prior to me starting my own business as a Travel Counsellor I trained as a Primary school teacher and also worked as an investment accountant for the Bank of New York. It was teaching abroad in Thailand where I lived for a year that really ignited my desire to work in the travel industry.
However, I have had a passion for travel all my life, having visited most continents, including most of Europe and having lived and worked abroad in beautiful Thailand, where I have specialist travel knowledge. I still have a number of travel destinations to tick off my wish list, including South Africa and New Zealand and I try to combine my love of travel with some travel writing to document these adventures with pride. Travel continues to enrich my life and I love to share this passion with others.
