PDA: Some people love it, some people hate it; there’s no in between.

However, there’s one form of PDA that even the most headstrong of PDA-haters can admit is pretty adorable: love locks.

So, what are these love locks, you ask? Lovers and friends inscribe their initials onto a padlock, lock it onto a bridge, a gate, or other public fixture, and then throw away the key, symbolizing their unending and unbreakable love.

If you’re not able to go on a special romantic getaway, take a trip through this photo gallery and see a few of the world’s most famous landmarks for love locks!
