Hey there, this is Joseph Lyttleton. I am a writer of novels, blogs, and (sigh) content. I am a professional freelancer (is that an oxymoron?) who dabbles in photography and tends to go on political rants.
In 2005, I began a life-changing journey: 10 Cities/10 Years. I challenged myself to live in a new city every year in order to gain a varied experience, see more of the United States, and maybe pick up some good stories along the way. Partly a travel blog, partly a social experiment, “10 Cities” changed my life.
On September 1st, 2015, I reached the conclusion of the project, having lived in the US’s most renowned and idiosyncratic cities. In each new home, I experienced America’s diversity as well as its defining homogeneity. The United States is a nation built on differing perspectives and driving passions that still, somehow, breeds a thriving whole, even in the midst of hardship.
From 2005 to 2015, I called these 10 cities home:
In 2017, I relocated to Madrid, Spain, where I’m writing, taking photos, and gaining an even broader perspective. To keep you up to date with my ongoing journey, I regularly use Twitter and Instagram. I continue to use 10 Cities/10 Years as an ostensible travel blog, but don’t be surprised to find my thoughts on politics, religion, art, and culture mixed in there too.
