From Sarah, France

Sarah, Paris, France

This is where I live: Europe! (Paris to be precise). I moved from the UK (Edinburgh and Oxford) in 1982, for a job with an international organisation. Been a freelance interpreter since 1988. There is no utopia, but I'd rather be in Europe than anywhere else - our problems are first world problems and soluble. So many freedoms. My life in continental Europe is a constant reminder of the absence of war. Young people know this too. Good food & wine as well!


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
