When I was invited to drive on ice in a modified rally car I was terrified (I’d recently written off a car in an accident on black ice). So I made myself do it and was surprised that I really enjoyed the experience. I was on a press trip to Madesimo, a pretty town in the Italian Alps. I took this photo whilst waiting with the other journalists for my turn to drive. You can read more about my ice-driving experience here. After ice-driving we went snow-mobiling, which was also really enjoyable. Then it was time for some delicious Italian food in a mountain restaurant.
