Freedom on a Train

As someone who relishes the idea of a more nomadic lifestyle, I totally get Leonie Müller’s taking up residence on trains. Right, she lives on the rails rather than pays rent. She writes about her experiences, which have become an academic study as well, at the “Wherever You Go, There You Are” blog (eh, in German).

She passed the 8-week mark last week, but I can’t discern from the Google translation whether this is the 9th or 10th in her homeless sojourn. Imagine the boon for rail revenues if more people did this (and long lines to freshen up in the toilets).

Washington Post published something about the 23 year-old college student yesterday, with quote that I totally relate: “I want to inspire people to question their habits and the things they consider to be norma…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”.

Get out of the rut, and get on the train. But what about pets. Will my cats require additional fares?
