Joe Says:

Over a year in Sydney and only our first trip to the blue mountains which is only 2 hours outside sydney. I have used up all my holidays and more goin home in June so only able to go for the weekend but it was savage, much better than I expected. I mean the ozzies were saying it was good but listen they dont really have many natural wonders so my expectation were quite low. Arrived up on the Friday night at bout 8 and even though was recked was still a bit excited to be doing a small bit of traveling again and seeing new things. Didnt realise how much I actually missed traveling till then. We had booked a little cottage in Leura with a log fire and it was really nice. Saturday was our first real sightseeing day so we went to see the three sisters. The views were nice but not amazing and this place is a bit of a tourist trap. We decided to go and look at some other areas recomended in lonely planet. We hit off and after about 10 mins we ran out of paved road but thought nothing off it but after another 10mins and no sign of any sign posts for the lookout we were searching for I began to doubt catriona navigation skills (not good at the best of times) We stayed going for about 20 mins and eventually came to the end of the road and took a walking trail. This took us to a rock lookout and man the views were amazing. The fact that it was so remote, no one else around and it was just dusk. The place looked savage. Words cant even describe it (just look at the photos). Definatly the best part for me. We headed back to our cabin and decided to get a take away from the dodgest chinese ever. Lucky for me I have a stomach like a cow but even I didnt finish it. We are already planning our next trip to the blue mountains, this time to the Jenolan Caves watch this space for the next update.
