Whether you love them or hate them love-locks will always have a romantic appeal. Many city councils now regard the locks as vandalism. I don't hate them or love them but why not, like here under the Swan Bells have a designated spot for tourists and locals to 'lock it down' and embrace the romantic holiday ideal. Admittedly not quite as romantic as Pont des Arts, but also not doing any structural damage. It seems like a win, win situation to moi.. well what do you know, maybe I am a romantic after all :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. just reiterating there is no structural damage being caused here!
