Lock and Key

On several of the bridges here, you'll see the link fencing guardrails completely plastered with padlocks. They all have inscriptions on them. Basically, you are supposed to write the name of your love on the lock, attach it to the bridge and throw away the key to guarantee lifelong togetherness.

A nice sentiment, and I would like to think that it's creating a nice sandbar of tiny keys somewhere downstream along the Seine.

  1. That's really cool! We're moving to the UK soon, and planning on going to Paris on vacation shortly thereafter. Totally have to see that.

    BTW--I'm Blair, a friend of Sara (SMP_or_Die). She linked to your blog a while ago, which is how I came across it. Hope you're enjoying Paris!

    1. Hiya Blair-

      Good luck on your newly minted expat status! When do you move?
