Why Not Get Love Locked In Paris?

Want to get locked in for life?  People in Paris do!  Outside Notre Dame Cathedral, thousands of lovers are writing their names on locks, securing them to the bridge’s fence, and then tossing the key into the Seine below. 

C’est tellement romantique! But it’s driving city officials crazy – despite their many unsuccessful attempts with bolt cutters, the lovers keep coming back in droves! 
 As of yet, the bureaucrats haven’t been able to overcome the power of love, and the bridge remains love-locked. Happy Valentine's Day --- Lisa J.


  1. Another thing to add to my Paris to-do!

  2. We have this in Germany too! On a bridge, near the Cologne Cathedral... it's just awesome. Take a look: http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01997/cologne-padlocks_1997376i.jpg

  3. Heard people tried to do this in Toronto and all the locks got cut off :(
