There has been a recent report that part of the pont des arts collapsed over the weight of the love locks. This is a romantic gesture that started in 2007 where lovers put a lock on the bridge usually with their initials or name and throw the key in the water. Locks are popping up all over the city. Read the full story here While it is a romantic gesture, Paris is a romantic city in itself. Do people need to declare their love with a lock while it destroys historical parts of Paris such as the pont des arts? What are your thoughts? Love locks in Paris yes or no?

One of my favorite things too when I am in Paris is to watch the light change on the Seine. From early morning light to the light just before the sun sets. Coming to Ile St Louis to watch the sunset and the lights turn on was on my list. Thankfully I did it at the beginning of October when it was somewhat warm once the sun set. If you have the chance I highly recommend it. I made sure to find this spot several times during my month in Paris.
