Over the holidays Julie and I decided to visit what I feel are the two most expensive places in Europe. The first was a 4 day weekend over the X-mas holiday in London. The Second was another 4 day weekend in the ski slopes of Interlaken Switzerland. These were two of the main places Julie wanted to visit during our year in Europe.
London is LONDON, this city is by far my favorite we have spent time in since moving to Germany. There are so many different things to do there and the 4 days we had wasn't nearly enough. There are way to many museums, monuments/Palace/Parliament/Westminster Abby to see in the 4 days we had. So we decided to try and hit up the high lights.
Our first day revolved around The Tower of London, home of the Crown Jewels and many other historical high lights, from back in the day.

|Where the "Crown Jewels" are kept!|
|Carvings in the walls of the prison tower|
|smallest set of armour made|
|crazy cannons that took 4 men to load one ball|
On our third day we decided the best bet would be to wonder the city by foot and check out all the monuments, Parliament, and the Palace. This was a great way to loose those calories from all the fish&chips we had been having from the previous days.
