The author, broadcaster and well-known feature writer Flic Everett, is to move to a full time role as editor of a one year old website which she helped establish. The site – roadrailandsea.co.uk – aims to ‘recapture the golden age of travel, planning unforgettable routes throughout Europe by car, train and ship’.
Everett has had a colourful career.
She started her journalistic career as a feature writer, initially with the Manchester Evening News and then with The Mirror, Real, Company, Scarlet and other womens’ titles. She also ran a clothes shop in Manchester called Rags to Bitches and she has also written five books on sex and relationships, including How to be a Sex Goddess and Sex Tips For Girls.
She is currently the acting features editor at Candis, the Wirral-based national female monthly title and after Easter will be taking up a full time role with Road Rail and Sea.
The site was launched in 2012 by the managing director Simon Buckley and technical director Andrew Leask. Everett was also a launch partner but has been part time hitherto.
Everett said that www.roadrailandsea.co.uk seeks to “combine elegant, informative writing and original photography with a stylish Art Deco design inspired by vintage travel posters.
“All recommended journeys, from chic Eurostar weekends to month-long road trips, include a meticulously edited selection of hotels, restaurants, bars, shops and attractions, to ensure travellers experience the best of every destination, whether travelling alone, with partner or friends, or as a family. Users can then book their chosen trip through Road, Rail and Sea’s trusted travel partners, which include Railbookers and the AA.”
The site generates revenue through bookings made via affiliates and there is also an online shop where users can purchase prints, travel items and books, DVDs and music.
