Postcrossing # 43
Here’s another great addition to my growing collection of map cards. This is from Wim, a Postcrosser from a small Dutch village called Wezep. He has been a member of Postcrossing for over 7 years and has sent almost 2000 postcards already. It would surely be interesting to see the various kinds of postcards that he has received over the years (according to his profile, he has received 1,831 postcards). Thanks, Wim !
I received this vintage-looking postcard from Ana, who lives in Saratov, Russia. She said she likes to travel which could be why she chose this postcard that features a map of the world.
The Neckar is a 367 km (228 mi) long river, mainly flowing through the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg, but also a short section through Hesse, in Germany. The Neckar is a major right tributary of the River Rhine. Rising in the Black Forest near Villingen-Schwenningen in the conservation area Schwenninger Moos at a height of 706 m (2,316 ft.) above sea level, it passes through Rottweil, Rottenburg am Neckar,Kilchberg,Tübingen, Wernau, Nürtingen, Plochingen, Esslingen, Stuttgart,Ludwigsburg, Marbach, Heilbronn and Heidelberg, before discharging into the Rhine at Mannheim (at 95 m (312 ft.) above sea level).

Thanks to Eva-Maria of Germany for sending me this postcard.
