Hard to say without more details of exactly where you are and what's going on...but maybe there's a specific NPC you need to talk to in order to move on...

Well you might need to talk to a npc or try looking at your menu you might get an option to move to that place.

You're definately in an instance. What City did you pick? Speak to the NPCs nearby and ask about the quest.

When in doubt check your Journal and do what it says. It even shows you where to go on the map if you use the little button at the bottom of the quest log.

hehe, this is one of those things that needs better explenation at the start of the game ^^

An instance seperates you from the rest of the online players while giving you a chance to discover the NPCs or watch cutscenes. Most of the time you will not be allowed to move out of an instance until you have completed that part of the story, while others (and this is where its confusing) you have to move out of to make the story continue... its a headache to a new player but after a couple of run-ins with them you'll get the hang of it ;)

edit: an example from teh start of the game in Limsa;
Hob has taken you to the Inn, a cut-scene will have played. You are now in an instance. A blue-red circle will highlight an area of your minimap that you are restricted to. Baderon(spelling?) will be at the bar waiting for you to talk to him where you are assigned a task within a story called Treasures of the Main. After this you can walk away from the Inn to exit the instance, and join the rest of the MMO players ^^
If you are not in Limsa, the NPC you need to speak to will always be one of those who you saw in the cutscene at the start.
