From Stephen, Spain

01 January 2020

Stephen, Spain 

I moved to be with the Spanish woman who I is now my civil partner. I left from Saltaire (West Yorkshire) in the autumn of 2013. To help improve my Spanish which was basic when I arrived, I have several language exchanges during the week. We speak 1/2 hour in Spanish, the other in English. I've made new friends here.


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
