From Lucy, Berlin, Germany

Lucy, Berlin, Germany

Hallo! I came to Berlin in 2010 from Bedfordshire because I wanted an adventure and to learn a new language. As a musician (classical singer) it's much easier getting work here than in the UK, so I can't imagine going 'home', though I miss my family! Life in berlin is colourful, spontaneous, never boring, refreshingly cheap, welcoming and fascinating. I love it!


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
