Her detailed blog posts not only teaches travellers on how to do build a gas stove cabinet in a vehicle or electrifying her van, it also elaborates on the budget.
Born in Italy, Morina Piro is a traveller. But what makes this twenty-something woman stand out from us mere mortals is that she is living her dreams (and probably the dream of many others, including us).
Tired of monotonous office work and materialism, Marina decided to ditch her day job to travel the world with her dog.
It may sound like a too-good-to-be-true kind of dream, but Marina is actually living it.
She describes herself as a child-at-heart, vegan, dog lover and wants to grow up to become a self-sufficient forest fairy.
And by the looks of her Instagram account, she is well on her way to becoming one.
The global trotter and adventure-seeker is currently travelling the world with her two best friends Odie, her rescue dog, and Pam, her converted van.
Marina, who purchased the van in 2015, converted the van for her and her dog’s convenience. And with each addition and modification that she made, the dream of travelling constantly started materializing for the trio.
The decision to travel by van was made because Marina didn’t want to leave her dog behind. She wanted to enjoy all the epic adventures with Odie, who is a labradoodle cross.
A very cold bit very satisfying hike up the “sentiero dei 4444 scalini” or the “4444 steps path” the longest stairway in italy. The legend sais that if two lovers walk the path hand in hand, they will always stay together. I tried holding hands with Odie bit he just run off chasing irresistible smells. 🐶
Pamthevan needs fixing and the next trip needs organizing so we will be spending few more weeks exploring the north of italy. Plenty of time to work on new blogposts! ✋ .

Till now, Piro has travelled many destinations including Scotland, France, Germany, Slovenia and plans to travel many more.
Apart from her travel exploits, Piro also manages a website where she documents her journey extensively with her followers. It’s called Pam The Van Blog.
Cannot believe Odie agreed in being my navigator during this little packrafting Adventure. Yes the water is very shallow there but i promise we did conquered some (tiny) rapids. And yes there are three horses on on the background.

And the purpose of creating the blog she writes was “to make women feel like they could travel if they wanted to, even if they are alone or clueless.” In the past 11 months, the adorable duo visited lakes in France, hiked mountains and went canoeing in Italy, and enjoyed the seaside in Brighton. Her journey will certainly give us new #travelgoals to aspire for. For all those brave hearts waiting to take the plunge and set sail into the unknown, we wish you all the best.
