From David, Finland

David, Pieksamaki, Finland

I moved to Finland from the UK in 1999. I came here because my wife is a Finn and we moved to Pieksamaki after our daughter was born to be close to granny. I teach English in a day care and after Brexit become a Finn!


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
