From Kate, Finland

Kate, Finland

I moved to Finland with my wife from London. We both had job interviews and decided to go for the best one for 2 women married to each other. This was in 2012 - now our marriage is recognised as such in both countries and I am a dual UK-Finnish citizen. I am also a translator.


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
