Antarctica is one of the most mysterious and least visited places in the world. It only gets about 35,000 visitors per year and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to visit it.

Here are some mind-blowing facts about Antarctica. Antarctica is about 1.5 times the size of the USA. It’s the coldest place on earth. Antarctica is the coldest and windiest place on earth.
