It was in the news at the weekend that Pont des Arts, AKA the Love Lock bridge, in Paris will be closing this week for removal of its brass locks, due to fears of the bridge collapsing. I was shocked that this would happen to one of my #40b440 items – how could this be? What do I do now?
I looked into other bridges in Paris, hoping that I could still find an excuse for a quick stopover in the City of Love, but quickly realised that this symbol of affection was becoming outdated and downright dangerous – not just in Paris but elsewhere.
So I quit. I decided that this was out of my control and, after looking for another thing to add to my #40b440 list, I should just deal with the fact that this is now 39b440 – the name’s not changing, just the content… and let’s face it, it’s going to save me some money (see 37. start saving)!
