Editor’s note: Mid-year

We are approaching the magical time where the Southern Alps will be frosted with snow.

Daniella Judge, Metropol Deputy Editor
Who can believe it’s June already? We are very lucky in Ōtautahi to have the luxury of being close to
outstanding commercial ski fields and other great clubby fields and I can’t wait to hit the slopes.
If snowsports are not your thing, there are plenty of other things to do in our city to fill up a winter weekend.
With businesses like ShowBiz back in full swing, there are many theatre shows lined up to be performed in the coming months.
Additionally, with creative minds putting their lockdown ideas into action, new entertainment companies and independent shows, such as those at Little Andromeda, are worth keeping an eye on.
If you’re a bit more of a homebody, I’d suggest picking up some locally written books, such as Fungi by Liv Sisson, (you can read all about her on page 12), or poetry book Biter by slam poet champion Claudia Jardine.
It’s truly motivating seeing young women doing incredible creative work locally.
Also with winter solstice on the horizon, you could think about planning a winter getaway. Metropol editor, Lynda has been off on a well deserved break, lapping it all up.
I’m planning to make the most of Te Waipounamu, the South Island, by going on a weekend trip to Methven this month to float like a starfish in the Ōpuke Thermal Pools.
If you’re stuck for trip ideas and have some time, check out page 28 for a four day road trip intinerary that covers some of the best spots in our part of Aotearoa.
