From Tim, France

Tim, Laroque des Auberges, France

Hello from the South of France, though since it's winter it is raining and we had hail at lunchtime. We left Manchester in 2007. My wife's consultant at MRI said the climate in Manchester was the worst for rheumatoid arthritis. We wanted heat and a pool, so we chose the Pays Catalan. Didn't know maintaining a pool was such hard work!

All the best, Tim

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
