A German college student has bid farewell to expensive apartment rentals and instead found a mobile home on trains.

The 23-year-old student, Leonie Müller, from the Tübingen University near Stuttgart buys monthly train tickets to hop on trains for free around Germany.

Müller even washes her hair in train bathrooms.

"It all started with a dispute I had with my landlord," said Müller in The Washington Post.

"I instantly decided I didn't want to live there anymore — and then I realised: Actually, I didn't want to live anywhere anymore.

"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 finds it an enriching experience living out of trains since she gets to meet new people. The monthly ticket to ride any train of her choice for free costs Müller an estimated £240 over the £290 that she was previously paying for her apartment rental.

"I want to inspire people to question their habits and the things they consider to be normal. There are always more opportunities than one thinks there are. The next adventure is waiting just around the corner — provided that you want to find it," said Müller, reported Yahoo News.

Müller does take breaks from her train home by staying over with friends and family. She shares her experience of living on trains in a blog that she plans on using for dissertation.

Wenn ich nach Hause komme, mache ich auch nix anderes als ihr Nicht-Wohnungslosen: Haare waschen, essen, Sonnenuntergang...
