Love Locks

While I was in Paris, I saw these bridges which were filled with “Love Locks”. I used to wonder how people could find space to add theirs to it. Even though it sounds all romantic and all, I thought it was a little bit too much because it sort of kept spreading from one bridge to another and there is no ending to it.

Today I read an article where it was mentioned that Paris is going to remove all these love locks once and for all. I think that is a good decision.
As quoted in their FB page and article,

Whether it’s in the name of love, hate, war, peace, or selfies, marring heritage sites is not something we should embrace as travelers. If you disagree, that’s your right, but, well, you’re wrong. The Earth isn’t flat, evolution isn’t a myth, and love locks, in addition to all types of vandalism, aren’t acceptable, no matter what your justification.

I totally agree.
