For a much needed weekend out of the forever hectic and buzzing city the
Blue Mountains sounded perfect and it's only $11 dollars to get there on
the train so we packed a bag and headed off. The area is known as the blue
mountains due to the eucalyptus trees in the area releasing oils and giving
the air a blue tinge. It is a stunning region, most famous for the 3
sisters, a rock formation of aboriginal importance. We did the 3.5 hour
walk along the cliff tops and down the 900 steps at Echo Point, (I felt
sorry for the ones walking up!) before catching the steepest railway in the
world back up to the top!

That night we took a walk down to Echo Point to see the 3 sister lit up and
stargaze as it was a clear night. We then headed back to our YHA hostel
with fish and chips and a bottle of red wine. The hostel was gorgerous so
we sat out on the deck with some Scottish and Irish travellers that we met
which was a good laugh but ruined any good intentions we may of had of
getting up to watch sunrise over the 3 sisters. We ended up getting up
with 10 mins to spare before check out time!
