From Jennie, Spain

Jennie, Malaga, Spain 

I moved to the Axarquia area of Malaga in 2013, having lived in Malaga city since 2010. I came to Malaga on the recommendation of some British friends I met while living in the north of Spain. Before that I'd spent 9 months travelling around South America where I learned some Spanish and did the Cambridge CELTA (EFL Certificate). I live in a small town in the Axarquia with my Labrador (Leo) and Spanish partner. I feel 100% European.


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
