How far are you willing to take to fulfill your dreams? What are the things you are willing to sacrifice just to achieve your dream destination?

Some people are willing to give up their full-time work just to pursue their passion while there are others who would use their retirement or investment funds to visit their dream country.

Meet Marina

And that is what a woman named Marina Piro did. Marina loves to travel, and she’s willing to give up everything, including her comfort, to visit different places.

In fact, she loves traveling so much that she decided to transform her old van into her own home so she can travel around the world together with her rescue dog named Odie. Marina was born and raised in Italy but lives in the UK. After two months of researching about DIY van restorations, she was able to restore a 5-door Renault Kangoo she named Pam. She did every restoration: From the floor to the seats, from scratch.

The Restoration

The van has all the necessities that you can see in a house. It includes a bed, a kitchenette, curtains, LED lights, and even some houseplants to prettify the place.

The whole restoration project cost Marina around $605 for all the materials she used. Although she didn’t know anything about restoring vans before she started, she continued renovating her vehicle because of her love for traveling.

Her rescue dog, Odie, also loved the whole idea. The dog likes it when they are outdoors because of the fresh air plus he gets to spoiled by Marina. According to Marina, the reason she came up with the idea of restoring her van and putting up a blog and an Instagram page is to inspire other women.

My main aim in the creation of Pamthevan’s blog and Instagram page is to really empower women more than showing how cool my life is.”
