For those who have already tried renting a property, they already know that dealing with landlords is no easy feat. But, one woman apparently became so tired of renting that she decided to take matters into her own hands.
After a quarrel with her landlord, Leonie Müller of Stuttgard, Germany, 23, gave up her permanent home and decided to live on a train.
Leonie Müller was so tired about the idea of having landlords that she decided to leave her permanent home and live on a train.
As a student, Leonie takes everything she owns with her, including her wardrobe, laptops, textbooks, and wash bags. She normally washes in the bathroom of the train. To be able to do this, she buys a £240 monthly season ticket, which is more or less cheaper than the £290 monthly rent she was previously paying.
Leonie, who attends the Tübingen University, is in a relationship with a guy from Cologne. So, it is very comfortable for her to live on the train, while traveling from her mother’s home in Berlin, to her school, and to her boyfriend’s home.
She shared with SWR, a German television station, “Normally, we would have to have a long-distance relationship, but living on a train enables me to see him all the time”.
“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,” she also told The Washington Post.
Leonie carries everything with her on the train, including her wash bag, textbooks, laptop, and wardrobe. She even washes in the bathrooms aboard the train.
This student purchases a £240 monthly season ticket to travel on train, which is £50 cheaper than the monthly rent she used to pay before.
When she isn’t on board, she usually stays with her friends, grandmother, boyfriend, or mother. She said, “I want to inspire people to question their habits and the things they consider to be normal”.
Leonie, who is currently studying at the Tübingen University, is in a relationship with a guy in Cologne. Therefore, it is very favorable for her to live on the train that travels at 190 mph to visit him more often.
Leonie has just started a blog, which she calls, “Wherever You Go There You Are”. She uses this to document her journey.
She also told FEMAIL that because more and more people are becoming more interested in her blog, she will soon be publishing an English version.
Nevertheless, this nomad admits that sleeping on the train can be very difficult at times because she has to take a quick nap due to the noise and worry over the safety of her belongings.
When asked about her new home, she said, “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”.
“The next adventure is waiting just around the corner – provided that you want to find it,” she added.
