Antarctica is not a destination for the faint of heart, and it should not be. Once you get past the "Drake Shake" with your seasickness remedy working, you settle down for the real joy: the excursions to see the wildlife and the glaciers. After a few excursions you understand the beauty of this place, and if you get a quiet rock to sit on, in the sunshine, to reflect on how few people get to be here, then you get the gravity of a trip here. If you get a good picture of a penguin, seal, or whale, then your trip is made! I may not have great pictures, but I have my good memories of what I saw and heard, and those are the best that I can ask for. I may never return to this place, but I was so fortunate to have gotten here once!
