Marina Piro, born in Italy, and resides in the UK, is a woman who has a serious case of wanderlust. Her symptoms? She just wasn’t content with traveling, she had to do it so often and in an old van that she named Pam.
Along with her rescue dog, a labradoodle cross name Odie, she now travels the world while driving a 5-door 2001 Renault Kangoo that she restored herself.
You can’t help but be amazed with a woman that not only is brave enough to travel alone (albeit with a pet), but is handy enough to know how to restore a van and turn it into a nice, and cozy travel home.
Yes, Marina Piro, despite the beauty that she is, is actually quite handy.
Having only researched the project for two months, she worked hard on the van to restore and turn it into a nice home for herself and her dog. In total, the project cost her around £500.
Not bad, when you consider that it has a bed, curtains, a kitchenette, some LED lights installed and even plants.
According to Bored Panda, Marina plans to travel for as long as she can, “whether it’s with Pam or with a different means of transport.”
She also added that her plan is not to see as many places as she can, but to really experience and get to know the places that she’s gone to.
Marina also claims that her main aim in the creation of her blog and Instagram is to really empower woman more than showing how “cool” her life is. Further adding that “I believe that every choice of lifestyle is “cool” if it’s what you truly want to do whether it’s traveling, being a home mum or throwing yourself into a finance career.”
