Tiny Romantic Monuments: 10 Love Lock Destinations

The love locks are a worldwide phenomenon. They fit perfectly as a symbol of love, when we cannot put it into words. The locks are unique, with personal touches from photos to carvings, while the purpose of the lock always remains the same; to close for good. They are also fragile like relationships, often removed by outside sources, or they come down because everything is temporary. Finding the right spot to place your love lock is key to any romantic trip.
