From Margaret, France

Margaret, Collioure, France

My previous partner introduced me to Collioure in May 2000. I needed to escape from a miserable 2 years in Falmouth. I found my house online via a 2-3 sentence description only in January 2001 and moved to Can Parterre in May 2001 when transport permitted my cat to join me. I am so lucky to live in such beautiful environment.


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
