Here's an interesting travel tip for those of you who are planning to visit France shortly. Starting on the 17th of May, until the 30th of June, in the Abbey of Saint-Martin de Ligugé Open Abbaye-Liguge link in a new window the monks there are holding an exposition of enameled motorcycle art.

Abbaye Liguge Enamel Art

The expo is named "A Golden Century of Motorcycles", and consists of 25 enamel based portraits of vintage and modern motorcycles, even the latest Ducati Diavel and the Yamaha V-Max.

Apart from passing through the obligatory gift shop, you can even ask the monks to make an enamel rendering of your favorite motorcycle. All exposed artwork can also be purchased. Each artwork is on a copper plate measuring 17 x 25 cm.

The monastery is open from Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 to 11:15 and 14:30 to 18:00, and Sundays from 11:30 to 12:30 and 15:00 to 18:00.

The exposition is the work of François Cassingena-Treverdy, a Benedictine Open En.Wikipedia link in a new window monk, and passionate biker.

As an additional travel tip, you can actually stay in the abbey, although you need to reserve. It is even possible to stay there as a group, and use the monastery as base for further exploration of the region.
