mapping out my movements

Am going to go here for a few pints after work:

Oh, and I went for dinner with the Brit here:

Took a walk along here with Poen:
Where I went last night for a celebratory glass of wine (or two) with the Brit:

Why am I celebrating?

Because I can get a working visa for the UK.
They've changed the points requirements, and I am so unbelievably chuffed.

After months of not knowing what to do or whether I'd ever be able to transfer here, it might even be an option now. A serious one.

Why is that so cool?
One reason - on St Patrick's Day, they had dude's dressed up in green and Guinness hats, handing out vouchers for free pints of the brown stuff for various pubs across London. The one little leprechaun took a liking to me/my accent (?), and handed me three. Three free pints in London is nothing to sneeze at.

Imagine that. Free beer, and until anyone gets pissed, no bunfighting. Imagine that.

A very good friend of mine used to be the manager of "The Rising Sun"!! We had many a wild night/lock-in there including a Christmas party in 1996!

Small world!

I think what you posted was very logical. However, what about this?
what if you typed a catchier title? I ain't saying your content isn't good, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed
a person's attention? I mean "mapping out my movements" is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's home
page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
