We are getting closer to Sydney. Will go west of Sydney to miss the heavy traffic, if we don't get lost! That will be late next week I expect.
Then return to the East Coast to continue our journey home.
A love lock or love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love.
Typically the sweethearts' names or initials are inscribed on the
padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love. Since
the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of
locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal
authorities as litter or vandalism, and there is some cost to their
removal. However, there are authorities who embrace them, and who use
them as fundraising projects or tourism attractions.
