Love padlocks on the River Seine

Awww, this is so cute. We discovered that on a few bridges in Paris, couples inscribe a padlock with their names, lock it onto the bridge, and throw away the key!

We noticed some people have their padlocks professionally engraved before coming, and others write or scratch onto theirs. Yes, there's a guy on the bridge who will sell you one for 2 euros. Disturbingly, some are combination locks. What does that say about the relationship?

More disturbingly, we discovered this quaint and personal ritual while playing with iPads in the nearby Apple store - I ran a travel app, and asked it "what is good near me?".

Incurable romantics, those iPads!
