Tim, Montferrer, France

Hi! I moved to the small village of Montferrer, on the Canigou massif in December 2014, having previously lived in Cambridge. I wanted to live here because there is so much beautiful countryside - very wild - and sunny weather. I have learnt to be a house builder - before I worked as a software engineer!


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
