‘Love Locks’ on the Pont Des Arts Bridge in Paris

The Pont Des Arts in Paris is famous for its ‘Love Locks’ which occupy almost all of the fencing on both sides of the bridge. On summer nights, it also becomes a gathering place for young Parisians to hang out, have picknicks and sing songs.

Taksim to Tünel tram in Istanbul

When we first got to Taksim, all we saw was people. Lots and lots of people. Shopping, eating, walking, etc. We wondered if the tram was actually running. It didn’t take long however to notice that the tram was in fact there, just buried behind the masses. This was a …
