Setting foot in Oprah’s motherland

by Wednesday, September 12, 2018

“My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here.” – Oprah 

In this week’s revisited episode of Journeys to Come, our team of travellers explore the city that has become synonymous with Oprah – and Obama and architecture: Chicago.

Aboard the First Lady of Chicago, Jack Walden talks to Ronnie Jo Sokol, a docent with the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s River Cruise.

Find out which is Ronnie Jo’s favourite building and discover the best time of the year to visit the home of the high-rise.

Journeys to Come is a podcast about travel hosted by Australia’s Queen of Travel Catriona Rowntree. Each week we share memories from recent trips and talk about upcoming adventures.
