We are beginning our planning and one of friends made a rather sweeping statement....."If you don't visit the Falklands and South Georgia it's not worth going to Antartica." Would be interested in the thoughts of others. The cost of a National Geographic trip visiting all three is about twice the cost of just going to Antartica. Would be interested in the thoughts of seasoned visitors. When answering, please consider that while I'm careful with a dollar I can afford either option.
