Postcards from Switzerland #4

Any Sherlock Holmes fans (book fans, not sure how prominent it is in the Robert Downey Jr films…it’s a title in the BBC Benedict Cumberbatch one – who is, sans doute, best Sherlock Holmes ever!) will be like ‘Ooh!’. We spent a day in this area of Switzerland around the town of Meiringen (defs one for the book fans!), the town where Watson and Holmes stayed as they fled Moriarty, and Reichenball falls is where Holmes and Moriarty fought and fell. Obviously not in real life (there was a time when I was convinced Sherlock Holmes was real), but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spent time there so chose to situate the confrontation there (I’m sure there’s a more eloquent and highly significant reason for his choice, but this is a postcard post, not an info one. Get on with the photos now!).
