Ambury Regional Park & Otuataua Stonefields (Historic Reserve)

Ambury Regional Park & Otuataua Stonefields (Historic Reserve)

今天下午剛好要去Auckland CBD南邊的Mangere欣賞NZ Opera的歌劇演出,瓶子便提議去該區域附近的Ambury Regional Park和Otuataua Stonefields走走。一開始並不知道Ambury Regional Park其實是個農場,到達之後先映入眼簾的是大草原,上面有些許的綿羊。

【旅行】泰國清邁古蹟 & 美食巡禮 Part 3

【旅行】泰國清邁古蹟 & 美食巡禮 Part 3

從擺縣騎機車回清邁的當天早上是個晴朗無比的大熱天,身處在山區時已經沒有像幾日前那般的淒風苦雨,也沒有泥濘不堪得道路,但換來的是塵土飛揚。最讓我訝異的是還遇到一家人騎著單車旅行,車上前後掛了四個馬鞍袋,感覺要騎上不少天。雖然不確定是哪個國家的人,但是是白人。(見以下影片35秒處之後)

回到清邁之後依舊是入住離開前的同一間旅館(Thai Thai House),老闆的態度依舊讓人覺得頭皮發毛,但是他不犯我我不飯他,井水不犯河水也就相安無事。

Android Weather app review – Android氣象應用程式評測

Android Weather app review – Android氣象應用程式評測

因為這會是很長的一篇文章,我將整篇文章分成不同的段落列點如下,可以點擊下面的連結進入該段落。沒有耐心看完的人可以直接進入結論🤣🤣。

前言

我在2010年年底時購入了Beautiful Widgets Pro Android app,我對這個app非常滿意,它能夠讓我客製化桌面時鐘與天氣圖示。換了多次手機,經歷過多次Android OS世代更迭一直用的都相安無事。2016年九月換了ASUS手機之後,使用這個app發現其中顯示的時間與手機時間無法同步,不管怎麼調整設定都沒有用。一開始以為是手機的問題,後來發現其他人也有一樣的問題而且作者不再更新之後,我只好放棄它轉而使用手機內建的ASUS Weather搭配Google Weather,並踏上了尋找心目中最佳Weatehr app的漫漫長路。

【鞋測】Skechers GOrun 400 & Nike Zoom Strike

【鞋測】Skechers GOrun 400 & Nike Zoom Strike

自從去年10月底的Auckland Marathon結束之後,我還是一直持續練跑,去年11月到今年的五月底的累積跑步里程超過1500km。去年購入的Adidas Adizero Boston 5已經快要壽終正寢,且也想要把已經買了五年多的Mizuno Spacer AR4汰換。最近適逢Sport Director NZ的運費特價£0.9,便決定來購置新鞋。不過SportDirect上能夠選擇的鞋款並不多,千挑萬選之後購買了Skechers GOrun 400 和Nike Strike,而會選擇這兩雙鞋子的理由很簡單:『便宜&輕量』。

【軟體】Training Log Manager: rubiTrack (For Mac OS User Only) (2018/05/12 Update!)

【軟體】Training Log Manager: rubiTrack (For Mac OS User Only) (2018/05/12 Update!)

[2018/05/12 Update!]
rubiTrack3使用了四年半之後,讓人引頸期待的rubiTrack5終於上市了。rubiTrack5的價格比rubiTrack4稍微高一些€49.9EUR,但如果是舊用戶升級的話,可以享有25% off的優惠,價格為€37.5EUR。我是自費購買軟體,因為覺得這個軟體很實用而推薦給大家,並沒有收取任何廠商的贊助費。

與rubiTrack3比較起來,rubiTrack5軟體首頁最大的改變是地圖移到Activities的左邊。與舊版軟體相同的是一樣有List view, calendar view以及collection view。

【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。
