My name is Duncan Gough. I have been a traveller from the age of two and a motorcyclist for the last forty odd years. I first visited Spain in 1983, I felt as if I had come home; one day it will be my home. In the meantime I visit whenever I can. Every year from 2000 I have ridden to Spain on a Moto Guzzi motorbike. From the beginning, I wanted to share my experiences and love of the country and people. In 2009 I published my first book; 'Back Roads of Spain'. The stories from my annual trips.
In 2014 I gave up Theatre and Film work to concentrate on writing. In 2016 'Sketches of Spain' – one man’s guide to the richness of Spain was published. It is now in the revised second edition and has thousands of kilometres of routes, sketches, photos and hand drawn maps. This year a new series of guides are being published; starting with ‘Back Roads to the Catalan Pyrenees’ – the Biscay Ports to El Pont de Suert and continuing with a series of routes that combine to make a tour of the Catalan Pyrenees.
Though most of my journeys have been done on a motorbike my guides are easily and frequently used by camper vans and other vehicles.
