ITV Travelogue Next Stop’s Chicago & Sydney, Long Lost Twins

Chicago and Sydney — what do they have in common?  How do they differ? This Next Stop, ITV Travelouge series, investigates both. The reason they chose these two cities is because of a novel written long ago called The Tale of Two Cities, written of course by Charles Dickens in 1859.  Check it out and see what you find.

In 1859, when Charles Dickens penned A Tale of Two Cities, a novel that, as it happens, stars a fellow named Sydney, he was motivated to depict the social parallels between London and Paris, the world’s two major metropolises struggling to find their identity amidst revolution.

The novel takes place in the late 18th century, a pivotal time for two other cities merely emerging from infancy, Sydney and Chicago. The seemingly unrelated, burgeoning pair was rapidly changing as well, both welcoming their first non-indigenous settlers at the time. Interestingly enough the newcomers were British and French, respectively.

Over 150 years later, Jon Olson, passionate host of KoldCast’s ITV travel series Next Stop, has stretched, prodded, and poked the best of contemporary Chicago and Sydney to reveal the colorful legacies left in the wake of their European forefathers.

Next Stop: “Chicago”


Next Stop’s 23rd episode opens with Chicago’s feverish sports culture. “Chicago might be the best sports city in the world,” asserts Jon. “It’s home to every major sport and extremely passionate fans. The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a World Series in decades, yet fans come out in droves to support their beloved Cubbies!”

Have you ever been to Chicago?  I’ve been there several times, and I’d go back again. The city is thriving and its people are friendly. They keep the downtown area clean and inviting.  ITV did a good thing stopping there and sharing Chicago with the world.  And Sydney is even more enthralling.  I can’t wait to get back there and have a big thick steak by the seaside.
