Ten Minutes with Miho from Wander to Wonder.

Miho is one of my favourite internet ladies and her space, Wander to Wonder, reflects her perfectly. Although perhaps not the place to drop by whenever you're feeling exceptionally hungry (because it will only make you more so!) Miho's writing always draws you in and making you feel as though you're catching up with an old friend. I hope you love her as much as I do.

 
Describe your blog in three words?
Food, travel, life!

What prompted you to start blogging? Which posts are you most proud of? 
I was always a journal-er, so documenting things online came quite naturally to me. I started my blog when I moved back to London after spending 3 years abroad studying, to make the most of London life and as a souvenir of my adventures.

I'm not sure which posts I'm particularly proud of... I'm always trying to improve my photography, so I think posts that include photos I'm happy with are some of my favourites, which are usually travel ones. On a more personal note, I think I'm most proud of my post on how I became a positive person - not so much for the post itself, but the fact that I had become someone who could write it.


When I think of your blog one of the first things that comes to mind is food. I know your husband has incredibly enviable cooking skills, do you also like to cook? What's your favourite thing to make/eat? And do you have a favourite restaurant?
I don't mind cooking, but I have to admit that I don't love it - I'm definitely more on the eating side of things at home! I do like cooking certain things though, especially baking - a batch of brownies is always fun to whip up! As for eating, my favourite dish that my husband cooks is probably the lobster ravioli, and my favourite restaurant in London is The Ledbury.


You also love to travel, and so I would love to hear a little about your favourite three places in the world. 
I do! There is so much more to see that I haven't managed to yet, but so far, my top three have to be The Maldives, Santorini, and New York City.


You're hosting a dinner party and you've invited three people that you really admire. Tell us a little about them and how/why they inspire you. 
Oh gosh, this is hard... right now, I would say Malala Yousafzai for her courage and being a voice for women in all corners of the world, my grandfather who I never got to know but I know I would have admired him, and J.K. Rowling for touching so many childhoods.


Name three things that have made you happy recently.
I love this question! Spending time with my parents, sister and grandma in Japan, seeing E again after two weeks apart, and starting work again after the holiday - I love what I do.


If you could only keep three possessions, what would they be and why?
My engagement ring, the pieces of paper E and I wrote our own vows in for our wedding, and my current passport that has been stamped in cities I have so many memories from.

Are you an early bird or a night owl? 
Early bird!

Sweet or savoury? 
Definitely savoury.

Summer or winter? 
So hard...winter.


Current favourite song? 
Anything my Mree

Currently reading? 
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton.

Currently watching? 
Making a Murderer on Netflix.

Your three favourite blogs? 
A Certain Adventure, Daisybutter, Cider With Rosie.


And finally, what does your perfect weekend look like?
A morning run to work up an appetite, a delicious brunch (probably the ricotta hotcakes at Granger & Co.!), a stroll around (hopefully sunny) central London for a spot of shopping and wandering around parks, having a delicious dinner cooked by my husband, and relaxing at home with some wine and Netflix. I'm very low key! Otherwise, I'd like to go travel to somewhere like the South of France for a quick weekend break.

Thank you so much to Miho for answering my questions (+ being so kind and patient all the time!), and I would absolutely love for you to click over and show her some love. She's brilliant and I just know you will adore her!
