In france, we passed a couple of these ‘Lock Bridges’. At first I thought that it was just a load of supistious nonsence, but when somebody explained to me what they really are, I thought it was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.
The people belive that if you etch the name of a loved one onto a padlock, lock it to the bridge and make sure that the key is never ever touched by anyone other than themselves, the loved one will be kept safe from harm.
Just think. Every single lock represents a person, a person that is so loved that somebody wants them to never be harmed again. Some bridges where so covered in locks that you could no longer see the original bridge colour.
