I set up this blog in 2010 to record my 'round the world' motorcycle trip. In 2010 and 2011 I travelled from Alaska to Panama and then South Africa to Kenya. Mainly on my own but my wife came out for some of it. I also did some volunteering along the way.
That blog evolved into a book - Gone Riding, which is available in Kindle form here
Since returning to the UK I have spent every summer exploring Europe (Norway and Sweden 2013; Romania 2014; The Balkans 2015; Poland, The Baltic and Finland 2016). I'm planning to go to Spain and Morocco in 2017.
I now no longer post regularly on here, using my Gone Riding Facebook page instead. Or take a look at my website www.domgiles.co.uk
So, please use the links to get a copy of my book and/or take a look at the facebook page. You can, of course, search through this blog to see the 'raw data' of my trip and lots and lots of photos!
Ride safe and explore.

Tracy will fly out to Riga and back from Helsinki. If she's lucky I'll pick her up and take her, otherwise it's a hell of a walk!

Often people ask me how sales of my book are going. I'm not quite sure what they mean by this (numbers or responses?) but for me it's clear. I didn't write a book to make money or sell huge numbers. I wrote it to encourage others to follow their dreams.
EVERY time I get a response like the one below I feel proud to have written GONE RIDING
Posted on Amazon.com on my birthday.
Of all the motorcycle touring adventure ever written... This one is by far the most brilliantly narrated... Much much better than Ted Simon books or the other guys... Entirely from my perspective are my opinions
