Elisabeth is Elsewhere is a portfolio of published travel writing and assorted musings by Australian journalist and communications specialist Elisabeth Knowles.
A journalist since my early 20s, I began to focus on travel content in 2008, when I took the role of Travel Editor at House & Garden magazine. In 2010, I became editor of Australian Traveller magazine and in 2012 I became editor of Jetstar Australia’s inflight magazine.
Some people find it hard to believe that you can forge a career in travel. “Give over,” they say. “Some of us have to work for a living!”
The sentiment is fair enough – as a travel writer you can pretty much travel all the time. As a travel editor, however, you rarely leave the office. I became an editor because I love content strategy, and it’s this that has most recently seen me transition into a user-communications role with Aconex, a cloud-based project-management platform for the construction, infrastructure and energy and resources sectors in January 2016.
