Postcard from Taiwan

5 03 2010

Since becoming a Postcrosser I’ve developed a real soft spot for Taiwan. It just seems like a really lovely place, full of culture and nice people, and it’s made me really want to go there some day. [Long sigh] Plus, as an islander myself, I have a thing about other islands. I think we have a unique – “mad” some might call it, probably the French¬† –¬† mentality that only other islanders can truly understand. Or maybe it’s the Lord of the Flies Robinson Crusoe romantic element. Whatever girlfriend. Have a look at this postcard – I think it’s my favourite ever! And you know what? Of course you don’t. It came with a matching Siamese cat stamp! Love it!

Postcard to Taiwan

5 03 2010

I sent this postcard to a really sweet Taiwanese girl who said her English teacher was always complaining about her grammar! Well, her profile read almost perfectly so I don’t know what he’s talking about. I’ve decided now that I’ll only send postcards to the Far East if the address is given in their language as well so I can print it off. Otherwise there’s just no point – it’ll get lost! In fact, I wish Postcrossing would make it mandatory for Far Eastern users to write their address in Mandarin or whatever. It makes sense!
