We’ve collected some iconic sounds of the USA as chosen by Hillary Rodham Clinton*, a noted road warrior with plenty of free time on her hands. Have a listen to remind yourself of all those quintessentially American things waiting for you back home.

We know you World Nomads are an adventurous bunch - in fact, almost 80 percent of you who have coverage with us are traveling solo. But even the most hardcore traveler can get lonely on the road and long for a bit of home.

So we asked a very seasoned traveler, Hillary Rodham Clinton - who as Secretary of State logged more than 950,000 miles to 112 countries - for her most inspirational American sounds. It’s the auditory equivalent of a postcard from home.

Just click on the play buttons below to be instantly reminded of the American sounds that you love, or maybe don’t love so much.

(*OK, we tried to get her but her email server was down. It’s actually voiceover artist Rosemary Watson.)
