A couple of centuries ago, Samuel Johnson famously said “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” – so we decided to put that to the test with a staycation. Here’s how to spend 24 hours in Camden
Being away from your partner for long periods can be hard.
As the lockdown continues, I’ve seen a lot of people struggling to find things to do with their partners outside of Skyping and watching Netflix together. I wanted to share with you all some wisdom from someone who had to spend a good amount of time away from her partner.

If there’s a recipe in my head that screams quintessential Italian, it’s Tiramisu.
My late Grandmother used to make it on special occasions, and would tweak with the recipe depending on who was coming for lunch: she would add a bit of liqueur if it was adults only, or would leave it plain if us children were coming around.

When I first moved to the UK, you could find me more often than not eating at a Wetherspoon. In my head, a good ol’ Spoon breakfast was probably the most ‘traditional’ British food (please forgive 2015 Vicky) plus you can’t beat the prices when your cash flow is low.
I stuck with the same food choices almost exclusively every time I went out. Variety was not my second name, and “Eating out in London is expensive!” was one of the first things that came out of my mouth when talking to my friends at home about the city.
That changed when we moved to East London. Suddenly, we had more time to see friends and different cuisines were at the tips of our fingers. In the last year, we have visited many pubs, cafes and restaurants, but these five places have been tried, tested, and continue to be loved by us.
