From Russell, Spain

01 January 2020

Russell, Estepona, Spain 

We moved to Estepona as we were finding life difficult in the UK. We made this move in January 2011, from Sutton, South London to Spain. We already had family living here which made the move easier. From my front window I can see the coast of Africa and from my back window the Rhonda mountains. As life is cheaper in Spain, it has allowed myself and my husband to retire at 51!


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
