The Ponte Passerelle Solfino is one of several bridges in Paris filled with the “love locks” of lovers who inscribe their names on a padlock and secure it onto the bridge before throwing the key into the Seine River as a symbol of their undying love. It was initially a
romantic ritual performed by couples, but that’s no longer the case. BFFs like Priscilla
of Weekend in Paris and travel blogging buddies Leah and Lola are locking up their love and throwing away the key, as are tourists who place a lock on the bridge to symbolize their love for Paris. Even families are getting in on it, and since I was there with the little ladies, we decided to
put one on for our family.
Miss P and Miss V were giddy about participating in this little ceremony. One wrote our name and date on the lock, the other put the lock onto the bridge and each got to throw one of the two keys that came with the lock into the river.
Before leaving the bridge, Miss P declared that she can’t wait to visit Paris again to see if she can find our lock.
lock doesn’t make the cut.
