All her life, Marina Piro’s goal has been to become “a self-sufficient forest fairy.”
After she rescued her Labradoodle, Odie, her dream expanded to include Odie on her world explorations.
But that meant she needed enough space for the two of them when they were out on the open road.
There are plenty of folks who prefer to eschew the well-worn path to forge their own, and many of them have created beautiful mobile homes by repurposing old school buses that take them wherever the wind blows in both style and comfort.
Piro didn’t end up with a bus, though. She ended up with a van.
Piro, who is from Italy, found herself a five-door, 2001 Renault Kangoo, which is nowhere near as large as a school bus. She named it Pam.
Still, thanks to her craftiness and creativity, Piro managed to turn it into a cozy, compact home for herself and Odie as they travel the land, and it’s not lacking in style, either. She spent two months just researching the renovations before taking on Pam’s makeover.
Living in Pam is the best option for Piro, as traveling without Odie is not an option. “Too many bus, train, and plane companies do not accept dogs,” she says, “not to mention the difficulties you might have to find a suitable accommodation.”
See how Pam went from a “moving can” to a tiny living space, and you might start getting some wanderlust yourself!
