About Me

My name is Duncan Gough. I have been a traveller from the age of two and a motorcyclist for the last forty-plus 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 Iberia on a Moto Guzzi motorbike.

 

From the beginning, I wanted to share my experiences and love of the country and people. In 2010 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.

 

Since then I have been publishing three books a year and am about to complete the series of guides on the Catalan Pyrenees; 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 'Back Roads of the Catalan Pyrenees'.

Though most of my journeys have been researched on a motorbike my guides are easily and frequently used by camper vans and other vehicles.
