Nicola, Mainz, Germany

I moved to Germany over 25 years ago after taking part in the Erasmus programme. Sheffield Hallam to Giessen. I came to Mainz for work (International Sales Director - wine business) 11 years ago. Originally I am from Runcorn, Cheshire and also lived in Warrington. Here I am 20km from Frankfurt- central to European travel an adventures. My brother moved here 6 years ago to build a new life. here I have many friends from all over Europe we share culture and friendship.


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum.
