Mini Adventures

1. Who are you?

Hi! I’m Milly! A small, twenty-something London blogger who really likes adventures, eating lots of tasty food, cocktails and having as much fun as possible, every day. I also work in travel marketing and social media – so I pretty much never stop writing and sharing! You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

2. What is your site ‘Mini Adventures’ about?

Mini Adventures is all about London lifestyle, food and travel – with a big ol’ dose of personality, which I hope comes across in every post. I want to inspire people to live their lives as much as possible, be that jetting off to another country, finding a new foodie hotspot or just those little perk-ups that make your day a bit brighter.

3. What is one food tip you would give about London?

Where do I start? London is a mecca for independent and exciting foodie finds. Although the classic British grub is easy to get hold of, it’s also a melting pot of food from different countries and cultures.

Avoid the big national chain restaurants, as there’s so much more to be found if you dig a bit deeper. London can be a pricey city, so take advantage of offers and deals – follow accounts such as @SkintLondon and @LDNCheapEats for bargain dinners out. And if you’re eating out regularly, make sure you get yourself a Tastecard for 50% off and 2-for-1 deals all over the city!

4. What is one travel tip you would give about London?

Central London is a really walkable area, and a great way to see it all – so don’t just hop on the tube for a couple of stops, get a map and make your own way there (or at least, hop on the bus). It’s a great way to see the city’s sights, and make sure you take a peek down the many side streets – you’ll find unique buildings, street art and tucked away eateries. Plus, you’ll avoid the main crowds, which is always a plus!

5. What is the best thing to eat in London?

I’m a big time pizza lover, and my favourite London pizza outlet has to be Pizza Union. One branch near Liverpool Street, one near King’s Cross, they serve up delicious, thin, crispy pizzas from just £3. For a WHOLE PIZZA. With super speedy service to boot. Not to be missed.

Oh, and because I can’t just give you one thing… check out Salvador and Amanda’s in Bloomsbury for tapas and sangria; Porky’s BBQ for a taste of Memphis; Dar Marrakech in Stratford for amazing Moroccan cuisine and Dirty Bones for some top notch fried chicken and waffles!
