I promised our Arts Editor a review this week and unfortunately I hadn’t had time to watch more Netflix or listen to any new music. Although there is a new Ed Sheeran album out it was a strong no from the team. Lost for ideas, I did however spend the weekend in Wellington so alas, here is a review of Wellington.
Wellington is a pretty cool city. For starters, it has a CBD that really easy to walk around. The city itself is flat (although the suburbs around it are extremely hilly) and the city planners did the right thing by not blocking the city with motorways. Wellington, besides it’s official government feel – has this pretty alternative feel to it. The citizens are like 2010 hipsters who still haven’t progressed. Lambton Quay has plenty of good shopping – particularly the David Jones which is a Remuera Mum’s wet dream. Cuba St is also pretty cool, at times like a more gentrified K Rd and at times like a less gentrified K Rd. A special shout out always to the bucket fountain which splashes water fucking everywhere but seems to be a Wellington sight-to-see.
Wellington is a pretty cool place; besides the earthquakes, crazy expensive rents and the wind, it’s pretty neat. I was pretty happy to be there for the two days of the year that there wasn’t blustering winds.
Fares start to Wellington from pretty fucking cheap honestly. If you’re paying more than about $60 one way then you’re doing something wrong.
9/10: Shoutout to Ivy + Scotty & Mal’s!
