Hg2 : The Hedonist

Simon Hunter

Simon has spent 10 years living in Madrid after going there on a whim after graduating from university. After teaching English for a few years, he began to write for local magazine InMadrid before going on to edit the publication for two years. After that he started working at El Pais English Edition, which is the English version of Spain’s best-selling newspaper. His spare time is devoted to yoga, his two cats, his Spanish girlfriend and snowboarding – not necessarily in that order. He loves anything made by Apple, jamón Iberico and HBO shows, but loathes rude people, mushrooms and Spanish TV. What makes him a hedonist? “My total and utter dedication to exploring every bar, nightclub and restaurant that Madrid has to offer.”
