Young Lasse Stoli works as a software developer, but he always goes where he wants.

17-year-old Lasse Stoli loves to travel, but this makes the lifestyle he has chosen even more surprising: he spends his days at Deutsche Bahn, the German railway, and from there works as a software developer for a small startup in Cologne. . You don't have a tight schedule, you can decide when and how much work you want to do, and you always take a train to wherever you want to go – whether it's the Alps or the Baltic Sea. Plus there are challenges and difficulties, which he clearly enjoys.

His house has been on the road since the summer of 2022 – and he says this lifestyle costs ten thousand euros a year, roughly four million forints at the current exchange rate. The bulk of this is a 100-year BahnCard for first class, which costs around €5,900, but in return you can travel anywhere in Germany with it without limits. His permanent kit is a not very large backpack with some clothes, a blanket and electronic items inside, such as a laptop necessary for his work. Speaking of work: Since it was difficult to do that over WiFi on the train, you had to pay for unlimited mobile network.

For Lacy, the biggest challenge was cleaning and doing laundry, but he found a solution for that too: he can do almost everything in the first class waiting room, and he doesn't go to the toilet on the train very often, if only for hygiene reasons. He usually washes his clothes in the evening and then hangs them to dry on the rack. You can also take a quick shower in the waiting rooms, but if you prefer a shower, find a pool near the station. In the early days, there were also problems sleeping, but he has gotten used to it since then, and it is strange for him that the bed does not move with him when he visits his parents' house.

The man also keeps a blog about his lifestyle, where he describes in detail, for example, what he hides in his backpack, clothes, toiletries and other things he keeps with him. He reports on his experiences from time to time, but is also active on social media.

Recently, a video of him appeared on Deutsche Welle's Hungarian Facebook page:
