from paris with love


So on our second day me and lyzi decided to embark on a little adventure that would involve a little vintage shopping, exploring the Seine and having a general mooch about. I really wanted to dedicate this post to the beautiful bridge we spotted whilst on our adventure. Lyzi had heard about the padlock bridge but it was only by chance that we came across it. This glittering bridge appeared in the distance and we were both like is it? can it be the padlock bridge? you guessed it...it was. It was sucha beautiful sight. The amount of padlocks were crazy. I wished now that me and lyzi had scribed our names onto one and locked it up with the others. You might of seen lyzi's new tattoo there is a padlock heart on her arm thanks to this little bridge and our parisian adventure...don't worry i have my padlock tattoo fund sorted (birthday present) i shall be getting mine too! we were going to get them when we were away but we couldn't find a tattooist in time.. Anyway i digress... My outfit was possibly the most boring of the trip, but it was so hot that day i would of happily walked the streets of Paris naked if you'd let me. It was crazy hot, i have the tan lines to prove it. Lyzi looked rather adorable as per. We stopped here a while reading some of the names on the padlocks wishing we had one ourselves, we decided to eat pastries on the bridge....parisian style. It was sucha beautiful bridge, adventures are fun....This was our fun little detour on to notre dame!

  5. Wow, love the padlock bridge! Getting tattoos is such a nice idea, I love tattoos that symbolise an event in your life because I don't think you'd ever end up regretting those (unless the padlock went all the way across your face or something!)

  7. I have got to visit this bridge next time I go. I will definitely be taking my own padlock. I wonder which is the oldest one. Fantastic photography.
