Dzien dobry, hello, welcome, bout ye!
Welcome to Don’t Stop Living. I am Jonny Blair, from Bangor, Northern Ireland. This blog’s author. This blog is now 10 years old, and was once the longest running one man travel blog to all seven continents, a respected travel blog and business that brought in over $100,000 USD, but sadly it ended on 31st December 2016 due to severe depression and suicidal thoughts daily. It is now acting as a backdated resource for all my travel stories through 150 countries and regions around the world. #dontstopliving #tourist #travelwriter #honesty #notlies
Visited 111 UN countries (57.5%) out of 193.

How to cause someone to feel suicidal and mentally unwell for 10 months: “Wow Jonny, amazing photos. We are friends”
(the lies I was told)
“Jonny, I feel overpowered by you so we are not friends”
(the truth that I wasn’t told)
These two phrases are the difference between suicidal thoughts and happiness. I was sent the first one, it was a lie. I hope anyone that reads this will act honestly from now on. Lies kill me, make me suicidal and cause mental trauma, truth doesn’t. Again, truth NEVER causes me mental trauma. Choose honesty. Destroy lies. I will never trust anyone but God again.
The blog ended due to the disrespect shown to me by an infamous Polish culprit, serial liar and travel writer disrespector (Un-named Person) and her failure to admit she was wrong, lied to me or admit her part in my depression and suicide bids. A string of lies made this the first person on my journey to be dishonest to me and never apologise. A shame for the person and their family and I hope they can find a cure for her mental issues. I pray for their safety every day. Until that person excremented me, I had planned to move to Kyrgyzstan to settle in Bishkek, but suicide and depression kicked in, so I now live and work in Poland.
After being lied to, I was then messaged by someone claiming (or begging) to be my friend, who decided to interfere in other people’s lives without permission and then took other people’s sides in stories he knows nothing about, and then offers no apology. This guy known as “Gordon GuruGod” fancies himself as a God, a psychologist, a doctor, a mentor and a Guru that can solve the world’s problems. All in one. He’s a nobody yet thinks he’s a somebody, hence he sticks his nose into other people’s affairs to make himself look better to others, to boost his own ego and to look down on guys like me, who come from an honest family, admit my mistakes and treat others with respect and love. Gordon has now been blocked by my close circle of friends. As a result, if the apology ever comes, I decided I would set up a charity to help those who tell lies but cannot admit they are wrong and cannot apologise. I always admit my mistakes, I am honest and I always apologise when I do something wrong. I am sorry it had to end like this, but I cannot go on. I hope you enjoy the old stories. Maybe one day the liar will realise what she did to me and she will finally have the guts to apologise for her horrible lies.
So now the blog has ended, I set this page up as a quirky easy to follow guide to the posts on places I’ve been by flags. By clicking on the flag of the place, you should hopefully get directed to all the posts I have written on Don’t Stop Living about that place. I have only included places I have been on here but not all the places I have been have posts just yet. There may be some places included in more than one category on here. Please note places are not countries on this list – I have branched out beyond simply countries, including some states, tribes, groups, micronations and disputed territories. I have also used the flag that I personally deem to represent that place regardless of anyone else’s opinion. It’s my website! Happy browsing!
