One couple's unforgettable trip to a cold, unlikely place

A lot of us might choose a warm and tropic destination to enjoy a vacation or trip, but I had the opportunity to talk with an incredible woman named Chelsea who had a very different vacation spot in mind. Think south. Very south. Like, Antarctica. She is a free spirit. Then again, she also loves to plan (just like my wife!).
