Welcome to my blog. That's short for weblog. I'm Jonny Scott Blair. I'm new to the internet but I'm not new to the world. I've lived on this planet for 27 years now and am in search of wisdom, culture and perpetual laughter. Every person I meet I embrace and warm to and get to know them. I am here to meet people and share stories, memories, experiences and passion with. I will aim to experience new people and culture and share these with every person I know and meet. It's not a bad world. Let's see what we can give it. Let's see what we can get from it. Don't stop living.
I will start this blog by putting in all the places from my 2007 world tour and my experiences there. I will also add in some other places and cultures I've seen plus people I've met, and it will develop from there. In 78 days I visited 17 countries which were:
CANADA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, NEW ZEALAND, MALAYSIA, THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, BELARUS, POLAND, CZECH REPUBLIC, GERMANY, LUXEMBOURG, LATVIA, FRANCE, NORTHERN IRELAND, ENGLAND, REPUBLIC OF IRELAND, ICELAND.
In 2007 I also visited LIECHTENSTEIN, SWITZERLAND and SWEDEN, to take the total amount of countries I have been in to 28. (adding in GREECE, PORTUGAL, THE NETHERLANDS, SPAIN, SCOTLAND AND WALES)
The country I grew up in was NORTHERN IRELAND, one of the smaller parts of the UNITED KINGDOM and my time there seeing beautiful people smile through times of trouble gave me inspiration for life and adventure.
I will create a section which includes every football stadium I've been to as well as every beer I've tried and every bar, pub, club or restaurant I've been in. This is the culture I embrace. I'm a middle class football fan who likes a drink and likes people!
Enjoy and feel free to comment! I am also contactable on e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My favourite quotes are:
"Happiness lies in your own hands" - Madonna
"Everyday is all there is" - Kylie Minogue
"Spend your nightlife table hopping" - Noel Gallagher
"There are things stronger than parliamentary majorities" - Andrew Bonar Law
"Dont stop now" - Neil Finn
Oh and that title "welcome, welcome, soldier smiling" try and guess where it from. It's a poignant one.
