【旅行】Sightseeing in Rotorua

【旅行】Sightseeing in Rotorua

昨天參觀完兩個地熱公園之後,夜宿在Rotorua附近的Airbnb。Airbnb的住宿價格比起旅館真的便宜不少房源選擇又多,以後外出住宿會把Airbnb當作首要考量吧。

傍晚的Rotorua,歐式建築加上鬱金香當作襯托,霎時間有來到荷蘭的錯覺。

【跑步】平日練跑路線: Westhaven Marina, Tamaki Drive

【跑步】平日練跑路線: Westhaven Marina, Tamaki Drive

我的公司在Auckland市中心距離海邊不遠的位置,上班日的練跑路線大致上為公司西邊的港口Westhaven Marina,或是公司東邊的Tamaki Drive。兩條路線都是沿著海岸跑,非常平緩跑起來很舒服 XD。Westhaven Marina的路線較短,起終點來回的距離約4.5km,而從公司沿著Tamaki Drive往東到Orakei Marina來回的距離約10km,兩條對我來說都是風景很棒的練跑路線。

PhotoScape X 相片管理編輯軟體 (Bye bye Picasa)

PhotoScape X 相片管理編輯軟體 (Bye bye Picasa)

一直以來就是Picasa的愛用者。即便在2015年3月之後就沒有更新,進而在2016年3月中止,我還是持續地使用Picasa。停止兩年後,想想勢必得合適的替代軟體。

看到不少reviews (1, 2) 推薦舊版的PhotoScape (介面老舊設計),到官網看發現有跟上時代(for Windows 10 & Mac)的PhotoScape X。下載試用後,不論是介面或是功能都比Picasa來得好,就是它了!26404947515_f63f61a4e7_o.png

【Life】Auckland居大不易之一年生活開銷心得分享

許多台灣人覺得在國外工作的生活品質會比台灣好、賺的比在台灣多,到底是不是這樣呢?個人同意在歐、美、加拿大、澳洲、紐西蘭工作的生活品質應該會比台灣好上不少,但若是在亞洲國家像是日本、韓國、香港、新加坡、大陸,生活品質就未必會比台灣好。至於到底在國外賺得有沒有比台灣多,我會分享過去一年在Auckland的生活消費開銷讓大家有個比較。

【敗家】Nike Winflo 4 & New Balance Zante 2

【敗家】Nike Winflo 4 & New Balance Zante 2

最近趁著SportDirect New Zealand大特價入手了Nike Winflo 4New Balance Fresh Foam Zante 2,這兩雙鞋子也是我比較過無數評價得知重量比較輕但也保有良好吸震性的鞋款,在RunPepeat上有不錯的評價。網購之前要先確認尺寸,便趁平常下班日Torpedo 7七點打烊收店之前去試穿Nike Winflo 4,這時候去試穿的好處是都不會有店員來問候。本來在掙扎是否要買更輕薄的Nike Flex RN 2017,雖然在RunRepeat上的評分也很高,外表看起來很不錯,但是實際試穿時的感覺不好。不知道為何鞋底偏死硬,踩起來不太舒服;楦頭偏寬,前腳掌無法被完全包覆,有空空的感覺,所以完全放棄它剛好省錢。

【敗家】Tomtom Runner 3 開箱評測 (2018/03/29 Update!)

【敗家】Tomtom Runner 3 開箱評測 (2018/03/29 Update!)

Tomtom Runner 3是2016年10月上市的,距今已經上市超過一年。它不是最新的產品,但我還是要寫開箱評測留記錄,因為這是個人生平第一支GPS心跳碼表。縱使已有多年騎車的經驗,一直以來都是用手機紀錄軌跡,所以沒有任何的踏頻和心跳記錄。五年多前練跑步時,也都是用手機紀錄,也因為沒有心跳資料,都只能靠pace來掌握訓練強度,一直覺得這樣的訓練效果不是很好。

最近又再度恢復練跑習慣之後,覺得每次出門要帶又大又笨重又不防水的手機真的很不方便,且沒有心跳記錄,訓練之後完全沒有辦法做資料分析,覺得該是入手GPS碼表的時候了。在不同的碼表間比較了許久,看了很多網路評價,考量價格跟功能之後最後選擇個人認為C/P值最高的Tomtom Runner 3 Cardio(Runner 3跟Spark 3是完全一樣的,只是型號不一樣)。
