It’s a sad day in Paris

Waking up to see the news of the removal of the love locks in Paris was not how I expected the day to start off.

I remember when I first made the decision to come to Paris out of the other cities I had to wanted to visit. One of the things I was most excited for was to put a lock on the ever so famous love bridge. That and eat macarons, but that was pretty obligatory. 10622832_10204798717510990_2259426808998882891_n

Needless to say, I put a lock on the pont des arts, not once but twice.

Once in September with my fling at the time, and the other just a few weeks ago with my best friends here in Paris.

We weren’t sure what you’re supposed to do with the keys so we threw them over our shoulders into the seine for good luck.

Putting those locks on the bridge were not only experiences; but memories…. And now, they are gone like a lot of things in life I suppose. I mean, it’s not like having the lock on the bridge was effecting my life or anything but it’s still upsetting to see all of those symbolic pieces of people’s lives being thrown away.

Of course, this is far from being the end of the world or probably even an importance to many people in the world but it was a part of my experience in Paris, so sadly it has put a little damper on my life.

I’m curious:

  • Have you been to Paris?
  • If so, did you put a lock on the bridge?
