When others get off the train to finally go home, Leonie Müller stays behind. That’s because she is already home. The German college student gave up her apartment in spring. That was after she had a dispute with her
landlord. She bought a subscription that allows her to board every train in the country for free. Now, Müller washes her hair in the train bathroom and writes her college papers while traveling. .
She says that she enjoys the liberty she has experienced since she gave up her apartment. “I really feel at home on trains, and can visit so many more friends and cities. It’s like being on vacation all the time,” Müller said.
Since risking the move, Müller’s life fits into a small backpack in which she carries clothes, her tablet computer, college documents and a sanitary bag. Financially, she benefits from living on a train: The flat-rate ticket costs her about $380, whereas she had to pay about $450 for her previous apartment.
However, living cheaper is not the only goal she has in mind. Müller said: “I want to inspire people to question their habits and the things they consider to be normal.” Often, she is accommodated by her boyfriend….. especially wen its time to get her congo shined comprehensively……
