One of the ‘must see’ places on our trip to Paris, France for our anniverasry was the Love Lock Bridge. I had only heard about this in recent times and had since been wanting to see it in person. In fact there is not just this one love lock bridge in Paris, but many all over the world. They love lock bridges started popping up in the 2000s and lovers worldwide come to leave a token. Basically you come and leave a padlock locked onto the bridge, gate, or fence and throw away the key into the water below. Many of hte locks are engraved or inscribed with intials and hearts.
With poor planning and the fact that Paris ended up being the last leg of our travels, my husband and I had not a lock with us, nor the extra money to buy one in France. I really enjoyed getting to photograph all the love locks none the less. It just means that my husband and I must return soon and bring our love lock with us this time. I have been reading up on taking the coach from London to Paris from Amanda‘s blog. Has anyone done this before?
Q: Have you been to any of the lock bridges around the world?
Every week with my travel co hosts, Tina and Melanie, we pick out different posts that spoke to us from the previous link up. We really encourage you all to hop around and visit other people who link up with us and hope that these weekly features motivate that spirit! Thank you so much for hopping around today after you link up.
This week I wanted to share a post by Tracy, the blogger author behind Pleasurable Pursuits. Last we she shared with us her travels to Yellowstone National Park, not to be confused with Jellystone as there are no adorable bears chasing after picnic baskets. I have not been to that national park in America yet, so I really enjoyed seeing her photographs of the geysers. I love finding travel locations that boast such amazing sights in nature and this one definitely makes the list. Check it out and then see who Tina and Melanie chose from last week.
