Woman Restores Old Van To Travel Around The World With Her Dog

Marina Piro has a serious case of wanderlust. She was born in Italy, she lives in the UK, and now she’s traveling around the world with her rescue dog, a labradoodle cross called Odie, in a old van called Pam.

The vehicle is a 5-door 2001 Renault Kangoo and she restored it herself after researching the project for two months. She ripped out the interior before turning the blank canvas into her very own cozy space complete with a bed, curtains, a kitchenette, some LED lights, and even some houseplants (car plants. Whatever). But why go to so much trouble when you could just hop on a plane instead? “The main reason why I chose to be traveling by van was that I wanted to have Odie with me,” wrote Marina on her website. “A van seemed the most viable option. Too many bus, train, plane companies do not accept dogs, not to mention the difficulties you might have to find a suitable accommodation.”

They’re currently in Italy, and if you’d like to keep up with their awesome adventures then you can follow their travels on Instagram.
