JONNY BLAIR IN THE MEDIA

A Northern Ireland fan who has visited more than 100 countries is hoping for a special victory on Saturday. Jonny Blair, 36, from Bangor in Co Down, said he had been caught up in the buzz of the Euro 2016 Championship. He is a full-time traveller who was at several of the team’s away game qualifiers in places like Romania and the Faroe Islands. Mr Blair said: “I have been to over 100 countries now and this is just another step on the journey, so it is off to another destination after the tournament anyway, win, lose or draw.” He added: “I just got the big buzz of finally being at a tournament so I had to be here.”
Belfast Telegraph
'Much-travelled Northern Ireland fan hopes for special victory'
From Bangor, Co Down, Jonny Blair has travelled to Afghanistan, Iraq, El Salvador and many places you may not have even ever heard of – such as Transnistria and the Republic of Karakalpakstan. A travel writer and backpacker, he has been travelling full-time for seven of the past 13 years and has visited around 120 countries – many of them currently struggling under the weight of years of warfare. “I like to go to places where there are typically less tourists, or preferably, no other tourists,” says Blair, who takes up jobs along the way and blogs at dontstopliving.net.
Irish Times
‘I’ve been to Afghanistan and Iraq, but main security incident I experienced was in Belfast’
These photographs are more than holiday snaps. The man in them, originally from Bangor, Northern Ireland, has made travelling his lifestyle for the last 10 years. During the decade since he packed his bags, Jonny Blair has visited more than 70 countries, met tribespeople, worked on farms, fed hyenas and been white-water rafting. And he has brought a reminder of home on his journey.
BBC
'Bangor man travels the world with Northern Ireland flag'
Jonny Blair, a 36-year-old Irish backpacker, said he was undaunted by the violence. “My lasting memory of Afghanistan was playing football with children by the Buddha monastery in Samangan (northern Afghanistan) (and) a night out drinking tea and smoking shisha (water pipe) in Mazari-Sharif,” he told AFP. “It’s totally worth the risk.”
Daily Mail
'War tourism in Afghanistan: adventure or reckless hedonism?'
Bangor-born blogger Jonny Blair describes himself as “a long term backpacker and digital nomad”. He has been travelling the world since 2003. “Since 2003, I have visited around 130 FIFA countries and a further 40 unrecognised countries and states,” he said. “I have worked in Irish pubs in three continents, taught English to children, teenagers and adults and spent six months on the farms of Tasmania.”
Irish Examiner
'Online Lives of a Digital Nomad'
Jonny is a Northern Irishman who currently lives in Poland. However, his journey to get there has been nothing short of insane. Along the way, he’s lived in 7 countries, studied in 5, and worked in over 50 different types of jobs. He loves an adventure, and as a tourist he’s visited over 150 countries and all 7 continents. You can follow Jonny’s adventures on his Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Flickr accounts, as well as on his two blog’s Don’t Stop Living and Northern Irishman In Poland. You can also connect with him on GAFFL.
