This German student didn't want to live in her gaff anymore, so now she lives on a train

Something to consider if you’re having trouble finding a gaff.

THIS IS LEONIE Müller.

She is a German college student and she lives on a train.

Yes, a train.

Müller gave up her apartment earlier this year following a dispute with her landlord. Instead of finding a new home, however, she decided to simply live on a train.

So how does she manage it?

She tells the Washington Post that she purchased a subscription that enables her to board trains in Germany for free.

The 23-year-old washes her hair in train bathrooms, travels with just a rucksack and does college work while commuting on high-speed trains. And she loves it.

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.

As for where she sleeps? Her mother, boyfriend and granny typically allow her to crash in their apartments. Handy.

According to The Washington Post, Müller saves $70 per month living on a train as opposed to in an apartment. But more than saving money, Müller is treating the whole thing as a bit of a social experiment.

She told the newspaper:

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.

So now.

Something to consider if you’re looking to find a gaff in Dublin.
