Heya Im Laura, Im 19 and just arrived in the Blue Mountains from the UK... This is the first time I have ever travelled anywhere alone and Im a little nervouse and not sure what to do now! Im currently staying with familywho are great.. unfortunately they are all working at the moment.

Does anyone know of any good activities in or arount the Blue Mountains? I dont drive so will be having to use Trains to get everywhere.

Any advice on cheap train travel, where to go, what to see, bush walks, how not to get lost, etc would be great!

Is sydney easy to find your way around? I have a terrible sense of direction you see so am worried im going to get lost when i try to go anywhere!

In fact, just any advice in general would help..

If anyone else is travelling in the same area feel free to contact me!

Thanks

Hi Laura. You don't say where you are staying in the Blue Mountains but, if it is close to Katoomba, why don't you visit the YHA there.

There will be plenty of information about travelling and the staff will be able to answer most of your questions.

They used to have "social" nights there where you could meet other travellers. If they are still happening, that would be a great way to get advice and maybe even meet a travelling companion.
