A German college student has lived on the move for half a year after switching her rented flat for a monthly ticket to freely travel on any train in the country. She calls her move an experiment that “questions people’s habits” and broadens opportunities.

Leonie Muller, a German who studies in Tubingen, decided to give up her apartment in spring this year and start a new life without being confined to a permanent residence.

She bought a subscription that allows her to board every train in the country for free.

Leonie has literally lived on trains for almost half a year and washes her hair in the train bathroom and writes her college papers while traveling at a speed of up to 190 mph.

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,” Muller said.

Since risking the move, Muller’s life fits into a small backpack in which she carries clothes, her tablet computer, college documents and a sanitary bag.
