by Andy Hewitt
Price verified 5 hours ago
No. 1 New Release in Spain & Portugal Travel, General Portugal Travel Guides, and Motorcycles.
When Andy and his wife, Kim, set out on their Harley to discover the Furthest Points of Spain and Portugal, they picture beautiful weather, glorious scenery and delicious food.
From a near-death experience and roadside sex stalls to bizarre Gaudí architecture and quirky, rural accommodation, will the trip deliver more than they anticipate, or will the torrential rain and gale-force winds send them scurrying home before completing their journey?
Perfect for fans of Bill Bryson, Ted Simon's Jupiter's Travels and Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's The Long Way Round and The Long Way Down.

Zoe Francis-Cox, Editor HOG Tales, the Harley Owners Group magazine.
