From ancient kingdoms to future possibilities,

From Confucius to the Bund,

From the gripping to the absurd,

from the inspirational to the decidedly toxic

we explore

through SpaCeShipChina

the complex, fluctuating, realities 

of a rapidly changing country

Spaceship China is navigated by an Australian woman who has lived in China for 13 years ……

    1. Hello thtasojacob, thank you for dropping by and decideing to read my blog. i had just started way back in January, and really was on a learning curve – I just discovered this comment of yours – I hope you have found many blogs you like since January!


    1. Hi again – boy, I did find a lot of unposted comments in my comment folder. the things one can discover in the blogosphere when one has time to look! thanks for the offer, I decided a while back not to put awards on my blog, but thanyou for the complement – esp by the date, you sent this in after I’d only been blogging for afew weeks!!!!!-


  1. Glad to find somebody who is interested in Chinese tradition. I am originally from China, and have been living in US for over 20 years. I will go back to my hometown at China for upcoming spring festival within two weeks.

    Let’s connect and share from now on.

  3. Hi Amy, haven’t had time to check yet, but really looking forward to seeing and reading more about your mother’s calligraphy. its the weekend.. so i will check soon!


  4. Hey, I tried to like and comment on your walls post, but when I tried to go there, it said “page not found” Don’t know if it is my end or yours. Just thought I’d let you know. I loved the post. All those walls, and the beautiful landscapes. Beautiful pictures!


  5. hi, how weird! weird that you could read the wall post but not comment.. ill try and have a look and see whats going on. thanks for the comments, glad you liked the pics 🙂


  6. What a great blog! I’ve lived in China for nearly a year now, but in two more months will be coming back to Europe permanently. Still, China will always stay close to my heart and I’ll keep coming back here to see it through your eyes. Love from Dalian, Liaoning 🙂


  7. HI, thanks for dropping by, and I’m so sorry to take a while to respond — your mail like many others from wordpress had gone into my spam mail file and I just found it. I agree, once you have spent time in China, it’s hard to get it out of your system. You might find it quite hard to settle back in Europe once you go home…. I tried, twice, to settle back home but always end up coming back here. I’ve not been to Dalian yet but I used to live in Qingdao. 🙂

    1. I think I replied on your blog too, Safar. You have a lot of very interesting and though provoking questions. I’m mulling over some of them to turn into a post! 🙂


  8. From Autralia to China, should have been a big change in your life, so different countries. I can imagine how much are you learning in China, rich culture, but very busy country. You have a lovely blog!
