Cruising the Andaman Sea enroute to Phuket, Thailand

October 6

We have two New Zealand sisters on board – Amy and Liza Cronhelm – who are the designers of a jewelry company called Wild Jewels. Their handcrafted jewelry features sterling silver, paua shell, Mother of Pearl, gemstones and fresh water pearls.

As part of their personal philosophy of giving back, Wild Jewels helps support the Michael Cronhelm Foundation Trust, formed to honor their brother Michael who died at 33.  He did a lot of work in Africa, and the foundation supports children and education in Northern Kenya.

They did a slide show of their compelling story.  To learn more about the foundation, here is the website:

I did buy two pieces of jewelry.  Here are the pictures and here is the Wild Jewels website. If you are interested in jewelry (and who among my friends isn’t?!) and want to support a great cause, check it out.

And here is our “around the world in 180 days” shirt.


As of yesterday, we started the second half of the cruise.  I cannot believe that three months has gone so fast, and lots of adventures still to come.
