From Caroline, France

Caroline, Viella, France 

A riding holiday brought me here. I loved it so much that I moved here in 2006. I swapped Chippenham, Wilts, for Viella, a tiny village just outside Risde in the Gers. Life is a roller coaster. If anyone had said that 13 years later I would have 9 chickens, 3 dogs, a French OH, and Clara, a pot bellied pig, I'd have said they were bonkers!


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
