    Such a sweet post, I love the idea of love locks but I've seen some of the bridges have had the love locks removed due to damage.

    There's a small town in northern Nevada named Lovelock. It's a desperate place, with no bridges and no romance. But there is a prison, where OJ Simpson has resided.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I am so glad you did! It lead me here to one of the best blogs I have ever found! I love this! I love travel. Now, I really want to start a love locks bridge in my area. I visited the bridge over the Seine River in Paris and thought it was wonderful. I didn't realize there were so many places that have Lock Lock Bridges. Oh, this is so exciting!!!

    Here in Italy the most popular love locks bridge is Ponte Milvio in Rome, as it was mentioned in a very famous teenage chick-lit book

    How neat, I had no idea! I was so thrilled to randomly stumble upon one of these bridges in Prague (photo here: http://nzmuse.com/2013/11/travel-safe/)

    I didn't know the history of the love locks so thanks for sharing that. I like the idea of them but find that in some places it's kind of out of control and it's hard to see the original structure. I guess I'm fairly alone in my thinking though!!

      No I think the governments in most places think this way most places that have them out of control have tried to remove them ~ but it turns into a huge controversy and then they stay ~ Some places I think are going to try and relocate them so they are not so out of control ~ :)

    I've never heard that origin story. My husband and I hung a love lock while we were in Paris. I wish I had read your suggestion of a Family Love Lock because then the kids could have gotten into the act, too. They would have enjoyed that. Penang, Malaysia where I am now has just introduced a love lock area on, appropriately, Valentine's Day.

    I love the idea of these locks - I'd never heard of what inspired them! Really, I don't know if I would want to do anything that follows in the tradition of a doomed couple - but it's a romantic idea.

    While I've never put one on myself, it was impressive to see the bridges in Cologne and Paris covered with so many. For that many couples to all decide to do it is a bit mind boggling! =)

    a very sweet concept, i wonder who starts a new bridge - it must be strange for a while when there are just one or 2 on a bridge!!

    Oh, I never knew that love locks actually started in Serbia?! Nice idea to involve your entire family, and engrave all your names on the lock.

    We have several sites in Munich, but I think the most I have seen has to be in Verona at "Romeo and Juliet's" balcony. I know for a fact that they come along and chop them off with bolt cutters once in a while though! :D

    Believe it or not I only first came across the idea of these love locks whilst watching Homeland! Now I see and hear about them everywhere and I'm from the UK. You've put a nice spin on the article and I like the idea of involving the family.

    We travelled to Paris last year and were amazed by the amount of love locks across the bridges. They have spread so far they are close to starting on the railings of Notre Dame.
