love the love lock

I recall, at about the age of 9, carving my initials and those of my one true love (hello Timmy Field!) into a tree trunk to ensure history would forever be recorded.

Had I known about this fab idea I would have left that poor ole gum tree be and headed off to the local hardware instead.

The love lock bridge.  Where lovers carve their initials in a padlock, attach it to the bridge, and throw away the key.

Have you ever been to a love lock bridge? Do you know of one locally?  This one is in Cologne Germany.

  1. The last time we walked over the Harbour Bridge we noticed locks on there – not a lot but enough to keep the kids walking!!! They are mainly near the northern end.
