Are you a wizard but stuck practicing spells alone in your parent's basement?

Go to Poland!

About 200 Harry Potter fans from 11 different countries met up this past November in a massive live action role playing event at the Polish castle of Czocha (aka The Czocha College of Witchcraft and Wizardry.)

Inspired by the J.K. Rowling series, the event was organized by a group of volunteers from Denmark and Poland. Those who attend the 4-day retreat are split into one of 5 houses (Durentius, Faust, Libussa, Molin, and Sendivogius) and work towards passing their S.P.E.L.L. (Senior Protective Enchanter's Lifelong License) exam.

The next event is scheduled for April 16 - 19, 2015 and costs about $345, so buy your plane tickets or warm up your brooms now!

The Keret House is the world's narrowest house designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny and situated in a 3-foot-wide gap between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland. As one can imagine, the wedged home is not without its shortcomings (no windows, ladder access only and very tiny appliances) but at least there's sunlight exposure, thanks to its semi-transparent, polycarbonate walls and ceiling. The Keret House will serve as a temporary home for traveling writers. Interested in moving in? Check out this video of the interior view.
