A young woman in Germany, said that she became sick and tired of living in a home after having a dispute with her landlord.

23-year-old Leonie Muller, a college student, revealed that trains took the place of an apartment, and she likes it this way.

Muller bought a train subscription that gives her unlimited access to all trains in the country.

Muller washes up in the bathrooms of the trains and writes her college papers while traveling at speeds of up to 190 miles per hour.

She enjoys the freedom of the trains, saying that she can visit many cities and make new friends. Muller fits her belongings in a small backpack, which carries her clothes, Tablet, and university documents.

The flat rate ticket will cost her about $380 per month, while she had to pay around $450 for her apartment. Muller frequently travels late at night, and is accompanied by her boyfriend, her mother or grandmother.
