The Beer House is somewhat of an institution in Chisinãu. It is essentially a Micro Brewery that started serving food and grew into a restaurant. Heavy on German cuisine influences you can enjoy delicacies like rabbit with a cognac sauce. They have menus in English to aide translation and plenty of beers on tap to keep you happy. The interiors have all been redone and one room looks like a cave inside. The main room looks like a street in a picturesque German town. I found the staff nice and inviting. I didn’t get a chance to eat here, but did stop for a dark beer. Top notch.
It’s located between the National Hotel and the Town Centre, just up the hill from the train station. That’s my way of saying you have no excuse for not stopping in for at least 1-3 beer(s).
The Tube is THE place to see sports on satellite TV in Luxembourg. An English Pub, they show different sports throughout the day. The first time I went in there were Australians watching Rugby. A few hours later Spaniards watching football (soccer). And just like the Tube in London, it is underground in a series of vaults.They also seem to attract people in costumes at night.
Email, ring or pop in and make a request for the sports you want to see. The staff are great and the beer cold. Result!
A dress is fine and so is any other clothing.
I've never had the money or the inclination to see the show at the Moulin Rouge, but I do think that it is a must when visiting Paris, to go there at night and see it all lit up so beautifully. Just take the metro to any of the stops along the Blvd de Clichy and walk west till you see it. It really isn't hard to find.
Now if you decide you want to go in and see the show, be prepared to come out with a far lighter wallet than you went in with. Be careful what you order because some people I know have really been caught and ended up with bills well in excess of 500 Euro for two people. Just be sure you know the price of that bottle of champers before you order it!
The Hofbrauhaus stands on it reputation as one of the most sought after beer hall destinations in Europe. Here you get it all. Beer by the barrel, good food at resonable prices, constant music usually by an Oom Pah Pah Band and bonhomie that can't be beaten. Many say, and I agree, that the secret for the huge popularity both with locals and tourists in Munich, of the Hofbrauhaus is that it does provide all of these attractions and all in the best most inviting way possible.
This place is steeped in history. The first Hofbrauhaus was built in 1589 at a different location and served only brown beer. The Hofbrauhaus we see today was built in 1607 and served white beer. I beleive that the two establishments were in operation for some time before the second one became the only one. There have been scores of owners in the 400 year history of the current beer hall.
Dress Code: Smart casual.
When in Luzerne. Don't forget to visit its nightclubs and bars that will make you feel the Swiss atmosphere... Night life in Luzerne is located right next to the main train station next to the chapel bridge.. Check it out.. Within walking distance from Hotel Palace, Montana and Shweizerhof...
Dress Code: no dressing code for some of them.. althou there are a couple where only members can go in.. but nothing to worry.. I became a member thru a friend and you are not missing anything different... Its just a club for non-tourists..that is all... Weird Huh??

Färnebofjärden National Park
Färnebofjärden is a National Park that protects a stretch of the Lower Dalälven River running from the city of Avesta to the Bothnian Sea. Water is the main feature of this park and water is what you will see here. Flooded areas, wetlands, streams and lakes, and of course wildlife, birds, forests and flowers. But mainly water.......... a beautiful sight to see, but it makes the area rather hard to access.
I arrived late afternoon at the park, very early in the season, with no people around yet. We were allowed to put up our little tent on the beach (an advantage of travelling off season), from where we had the most beautiful views over the waters of the Dalälven and Färnebofjärden National Park. The sun was going down, turning the sky into a work of art, but there was still enough light and time for a short walk along the shores. While walking on the beach we could see a deer quickly making its way over one of the wetlands, we heard the cry of a bird in the distance and the sound of a woodpecker in the tree above. The water was washing gently up the shore, the glittering of the sun in the water, a soft breeze, and the wonderful sound of 'silence'. This is how I remember Färnebofjärden, and how I liked it at its best.
Even in my 20s I was not much of a nightlife person. (dont get me wronmg,,I HAD my fun;-);-) But I usually walked so much each day my body was BEGGING to go home and sleep.
Even today I tend to rest up in the evenings, hit the ground running in early morning and see all i can see on a daily basis.
Check out my pic..who needs nightlife when the day looks like this?..;-)

A very cold winter day in Fort William Scotland. It has been the coldest winter ever in Scotland, the powerlines were breaking, waterpipes were bursting, but I was having the time of my live! It is soooooo cold, but there were also clear blue skies, and lots of snow. Scotland looked just beautiful! But when we got out of the car it was freezing!
The temperatures were -20 degrees celcius, no fun to hang around outside for a long time! That evening we were rushing to go to a restaurant in downtown Fort William as we saw this magnificent sunset. Who cares about the cold....
we just stopped in the middle of town and watched the sun go down.

In these "nightlife tips" I want to put a few of my favourite sunset pictures. I really love watching the sunset, but when I lived in The Netherlands, I didn't have the time or the opportunity to enjoy it so much. So when I travel I always take the time to see the sunset. Just sit down and relax and see the sun go down. See the sky change in the most amazing colours until the sun disappears behind the horizon and the dusk begins. Now I am much more fortunate in Sweden, I live on a perfect spot to watch the sunset, as you can see in some of the next few pictures.

Another wonderful sunset at my home in Sundbyholm. I live at Lake Mälaren and this is the most wonderful spot to go see the sun go down. The reflection in the water, the amazing orange colours of the sun, it is amazing. When I notice that we are going to have another wonderful sunset I always try to walk to the lake and try to capture the moment with my camera.

Beachy Head Light
A perfect time of the day to see this lighthouse is at sunset. It is beautiful to watch to sun go down behind the white cliffs on the south coast of England and look at this beautiful lighthouse so spectacularly set in the water. But be there on time! The sun is set before you know it! I really had to rush to grab the camera and take these pictures. But it was worth while; I really loved to watch the sunset here.
It is kind of scary though, to stand on these cliffs and stare down at the lighthouse. So if you are scared of heights, it might not be the best lighthouse to go to, LOL.
You can find this lighthouse on the south coast of England, close to Eastbourn in East Sussex. The light is still operational. If you want to read more about this lighthouse, you can take a look at the following website http://www.trinityhouse.co.uk/html/tlh5.htm
The lighthouse dates back to 1902, and was automated in1983. There was a lighthouse in this area as early as 1670. This lighthouse replaced the Belle Tout Lighthouse, in operation from 1828 to 1899. The tower is built of 3,660 tons of Cornish granite. It is just offshore near the foot of a high cliff. The light was converted to solar power in 2000.

Beautiful Italy and beautiful sunsets. I have seen so many beautiful sunsets in this country; that alone would be enough reason to visit Italy. But Italy has much more to offer than sunsets alone.
This picture was taken on the beach close to Paestum. It had been a beautiful day already, I had been to the magnificent tempels at Paestum (see my Italy page), and now this sunset... just gorgeous. The day had been perfect already, but this sunset was like the icing on the cake.
The night in Brussels falls softely, and it was a good day, sunny so the sunset was hold till 9.00 pm!
and after the lights begins to shine step by step!
The trafic is endless in the Capital of Belgium and Europe,

Belgium is the best lighted country in the world, there is no one meter not lighted in all the ways, streets, autostrads, and between and in the cities!
this is not only because Belgium is not so larg in theritory, but it is because its wealthyness and civilized and advance sublimated level!
Brussles is very important in Europe, the life at Night is almost the same in activity as during the day, there are plenty of nocturne jobs, and stuffs to do at night!
so the streets are always full of people and cars!
Dress Code: Its crazy but its true, the life seems to just start at night, many people like it this way, and I can understand why, after a long work day, time to enjoy life at night!
Brussles is a tipical picture of this phenomena!
