From Camille, Germany

01 January 2020

Camille, Berlin, Germany

I moved to Berlin in 2015 for the second time. I lived here for a year back in 2011 before moving to Switzerland in 2012. I met my husband in Bern (CH) and our twins were born there but we knew we wanted to move back to Berlin to settle. My husband was actually based here when we met. I am originally from Newport, South Wales and moved to Germany in 2006 to study singing. I now work in one f the Berlin opera choruses and am the proud mum of 3 British/German kids!

Best wishes from Germany,

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
