My name is Glenn. My wife and I operate a voice recording studio in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. We’re both voice actors, so getting into this business came naturally to us. I had originally started this blog to chronicle my field recordings; a hobby to help me get out of the studio. As fate would have it, one day I found myself in the mountains on a rocky trail while looking for a place to record. My scooter couldn’t handle the rough conditions so I continued on foot. This eventually led to me purchasing a dual sport motorcycle – two in fact. Slowly my field recordings became less and less until I was riding off-road exclusively. This has led to many great adventures that I decided to share here.
Hiking seemed a natural extension to the off-roading for me. Many hiking trails begin at the end of a motorcycle trail. So I would often follow them on foot, wondering where they would take me. I didn’t want to forget these hiking trips, so I decided to write about them here. Hopefully they’ll be interesting and helpful to you.
Since my first peak, JiuBaoShan – 久保山 in April of 2018, I’ve hiked to nearly 70 peaks in Taiwan and had a ton of adventures! Taiwan is such a great country to hike. I’m really lucky to have chosen here to live.
I was a brand ambassador for Six Moons Designs as part of their 2020 and 2021 International Ambassador Team. They make lightweight, high quality, affordable backpacking equipment. I’m really excited to be a part of their team.
Riding and hiking in Taiwan…that’s what you’ll get in this blog!
And if you would like to listen to my wife’s lovely voice–or better yet, book her for your next project–have a look at her website: Chinesevocal.com (I know, I know…her website is in desperate need of a makeover)
