Pont des Arts, 75006 Paris, France
Strolling over the Pont des Arts, in spite of the tourists, and the cliché, bereted accordian player busquing for a Euro... even with the lovers buying locks to place on the fencing, and the nasal wail of the Bateaux Mouches loudspeakers floating...

Just 500 steps stand between you and the observation deck at the very top of the arch in Durban’s beautiful Moses Mabhida Stadium, built for the World Cup in 2010. Don’t let the indemnity forms and the fact that you’ll be fitted...
