So, we finally decided to start blogging in 2013 and you’d think as journalists we would have jumped on the blog bandwagon ages ago. But writing for a living has taken precedence... until now. So what can you expect to read? Our blog title – Hunter Hedonists – pretty much sums it up. The Oxford Dictionary defines a hedonist as “a person who believes that the pursuit of pleasure is the most important thing in life; a pleasure-seeker: she was living the life of a committed hedonist.” We both love great wine, good food, travelling and telling tales – after a few vinos the taller the tales the better. And the Hunter part is a nod to our new home in the Hunter Valley, which we love exploring. In amongst all this, there will be the occasional sports anecdote (Rick was a former sports editor who covered Wimbledon and Test cricket for a few years), political view or anything else we want to get off our collective chest. That's it. Enjoy.
