Ian has left footprints all over the world, so being the manager of new travel agency Travel Associates Coffs Central is a perfect fit for him. He even has a travel-perfect home town – postcard perfect Shrewsbury, one of England’s most important medieval towns.
Ian’s journey from Shrewsbury to Coffs Harbour has been a long and winding road, taking him to all corners of the globe for both business and pleasure. He left England for Australia in 1999, headed for the 2000 Olympics, but stopped in Perth, didn’t want to leave and missed Sydney’s sporting extravaganza.
He met a girl in Alice Springs and their East Coast trip ended in Coffs Harbour, where Ian became the manager of the city’s Aussitel backpacker hostel for 7 years before returning to the travel industry three years ago.
A niche brand of the Flight Centre group, Travel Associates specialises in providing ideas and creating travel experiences and memories for families.
But Ian has little time to dream of his own family trips. After work he is a retained fire fighter with NSW Fire Brigades, attending night time calls, plus he and his wife are also building a new house..
Travel Associates Coffs Central is located opposite the Post Office.
