Hg2 : The Hedonist

Olivia Goldhill

Olivia grew up in London but left to spend four years at university in Boston. Here she has learnt to walk through snow and ice without falling over (too much) and has sampled the world’s best lobsters, but takes every opportunity to travel to sunnier pastures. Olivia particularly enjoys exploring South America, and managed to persuade Hg2 to let her write the guide to Bogotá. She loves amaretto and Johnny Cash, but loathes slow walkers-especially on narrow pavements. What makes her a hedonist? “I was vegetarian for two years until I went to Buenos Aires and couldn’t resist their steaks. I think that says a lot.”
