Locks of Love

I first came across this tradition on a bridge in Seville, Spain. Young couples write or scratch their names into locks, put them on old bridges and throw the keys into the water, preserving their love forever. I found groups of locks all over Italy. Adorable.

Le Pont des Arts over the Seine, the Lovers' Bridge in Paris, is also decorated with these love padlocks. This symbol of undying love was originated in China.
