This shall forever be one of the most memorable moments of my life. We ended up at the bridge by accident after touring the Louve. As we were walking past it clicked what this bridge was: a love lock bridge. I had read articles and seen pictures. It was nothing short of fate that I had a small red and black lock on my person and we also had a black sharpie in which to inscribe our names.
The bridge has been removed since then. But the experience is one of a lifetime. Together we took the key and threw it into the Pacific ocean while in America.
