I was facing the same issue while accessing the international websites. And then someone suggested me to use VPN for accessing these types of websites. I am using VPN apps for accessing the websites without any difficulty.
@johnbrook You can add search engines in Android - I don't use Mini and can't say about it. But in Android you can long-press on any search field and the pop-up menu will say Add search engine. You'll need to see if Mini does something similar.
