Mark Stachiew Travels Friday Five

Welcome to this week's issue of the Friday Five, a quick collection of the most interesting travel stories that I shared in the past week on Mark Stachiew Travels. This week's stories travel to Canada, outer space and the realms of fantasy!

Indigenous tourism: It's time to listen to its voice

September 30 marked the first Truth and Reconciliation Day in Canada. To honour the occasion, Travel Press asked us to listen to the voices of Indigenous tourism in this country. If tourism can educate travellers, perhaps the travel industry can play a role in reconciliation (Travel Press)

Explore Canadian filming locations on this new website

Not every movie and TV show is made in Hollywood. Netflix in Your Neighbourhood is a new website that makes it easier for fans both local and from around the world to find and explore Netflix filming locations that all have one thing in common: Canada. (Mark Stachiew Travels)

Do you think you will ever travel to space?

Space tourism is a dream for many and it's looking more possible then ever, but do you think that you'll be able to travel to space in your lifetime? (New York Times)

Woman's pillowcase trick for extra carry-on goes viral

Want to bring more carry-on aboard the plane the next time you travel? This woman's viral pillowcase trick is stupid enough that it just might work. (New Zealand Herald)

Rick Steves casually reviews dangerous fantasy locations

If Rick Steves was to give travel reviews of such fantasy locations as those in the Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Star Wars, it might read something like this hilarious McSweeneys take. (McSweeney's Internet Tendency)

Replacement wheels for suitcase and luggage

Ever lost a wheel on your roll-on suitcase or had it cracked by over-zealous baggage handlers? Good luck getting the airline to pay for the damage. Instead of throwing it out and buying a new bag, simply replace the old wheels with these sturdy rubber replacements. Each set comes with two replacement wheels, two axles and axle screws, four washers and two wrenches. They cost just US$13 and worldwide shipping is free. That's a lot cheaper than a new suitcase!

I want one!
