From Keith, Belgium

Keith, Brussels, Belgium 

Hello from the capital of Europe! I moved to Brussels in 2018 with my wife and children Roman (age 4) and Nina (15 months). I currently work in the Irish Permanent representation on secondment from Northern Ireland civil service. I'm a UK national, my wife is Russian and whilst the children have both nationalities Nina also has an Irish passport as she was born in Belfast so she will remain an EU citizen after Brexit. I am very envious!

Best wishes,


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
