About Joost...

Dear inhabitant of Taiwan,
If you are the one who sent me the beautiful postcard of Sisters Ponds in Alishan National Scenic Area, please let me know the ID code (TW-???). I'm eager to register it! Thank you.
Hi World!
I'm Joost (aka Shanlu/山路) from Haarlem, Holland by the North Sea. 39 and male. I'm a bookworm, but definitely interested in (if not obsessed by) what's beyond the horizon. Apart from that I'm interested in languages, Wikipedia, gardening (veg and ornamental), cookery, real full-sized maps of which I have a sizeable collection (!). (If you're also interested in cartography, we could maybe swap?!), hiking, especially in mountainous areas (山路!) and camping holidays. And I'm curious about what makes other people in this world tick, so let me know!
As to what postcards to send me: surprise me! Some suggestions if you can't make up your mind:
- map cards (cannot be detailed enough to my liking!)
- aerial pictures
- mountain or island views
- insects! (not butterflies per se; I like bumblebees, dragonflies, hoverflies and mantises/grasshoppers best, but I love all things insect, apart from the skin-burrowing representatives of this Class)
- plants, flowers and gardens (always keen on a bit of inspiration)
- flags and coats of arms
- food and spices
- camping (especially tents!)
- puffins, auks, gannets, boobies and other seabirds
- fire
- socialist or communist imagery/symbolism (СССР, Ostalgie)
- bridges, be they Roman or steel suspension

I will feel flattered if you send me birthday cards with birthday wishes in your language (any language!) in December. If you're native or conversant in any of the languages in my profile, by all means feel free to write your message in it.
Kind regards, Joost
