Card no 100 – Nelly (Nel80) – Marseilles, France

Another direct swap from Nelly and her son Theo.    Notre-Dame de la Garde is a basilica located in Marseille, France. This ornate Neo-Byzantine church is situated at the highest natural point in Marseille, a 162 m (532 ft) limestone outcrop on the south side of the Old Port. As well as being a major local landmark, it is the site of a popular annual pilgrimage every Assumption Day (August 15). Local inhabitants commonly refer to it as la bonne mère (“the good mother”).

This card arrived on 18th June, travelled 796  miles and took 5 days.

Total so far – 283,281 miles; 23 countries (including 9 US States).
