For most people, home is an apartment or single-family house. For Leonie Müller, a German college student, home is the trains that zip all over Germany, according to the Washington Post.

After moving out of her apartment in May following a dispute with her landlord, Müller purchased a $380 train ticket that allows her unlimited monthly rides on trains around the country. So, she put all her belongings in a backpack and essentially moved on to the train.

“I want to inspire people to question their habits and the things they consider to be normal,” Müller told Washington Post. “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.”

Müller sleeps, showers and does work on the train, but she is also often able to stay with her boyfriend, friends or family, so she is not on the train constantly. She plans to spin her adventures into a final paper necessary for her to graduate with an undergraduate degree.
