Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts PLUS My Top 10 List of What I'd Do If I Could Spend More Time in London

What are the top ten things I’d do if I had time and resources to stay in London longer than a week? Hmm. Great question. 
  1. Depending on the weather, I’d run Hyde Park, then collapse under a tree, people watch, and imagine . . .
  2. I’d sample a different cafĂ© every day.
  3. I’d make a real phone call from a phone booth.
  4. I’d go back time and again to the British Museum and look at the exhibits with a discerning eye instead of snapping pictures to examine later.
  5. I’d have coffee at Starbucks at the Tower of London and watch and listen.
  6. I’d wander through every shop and booth in Covent Garden and linger.
  7. I’d take the Tube and discover new places to spend time.
  8. I’d go to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
  9. I’d find a different cabbie to talk to every day—just to talk about the city.
  10. I’d try to enjoy white wine at room temperature. 

That’s today’s list. For those of you who have been to London, what would you do?
