I was invited to attend a press trip in Canada and test drive the all new Nissan Altima AWD, but all opinions are my own.
After 17 years basically avoiding driving in deep snow, I accepted the challenge and trusted that the Nissan Altima AWD would help me to confidently tackle winter driving.
I’m going to be honest! Growing up in South America, my Latin Winter Index was always in the low 80s!
When I moved here, my body acclimated to the cold winter, snow and freezing rain, but my driving skills never really reached the point where I felt comfortable driving in deep snow.
I received an invite to travel to Canada to drive in snow and ice – yes, you read it right, ICE!
When it hit my inbox, I immediately accepted, I felt it was time to do this!
It was about time to take control of whatever was preventing me from bravely heading into the white and enjoying snow covered hills!
This is my approach on conquering fears:
I couldn’t ask for a better ride!
