You could also bring a moderate, pro-diversity, mildly left-wing social and political viewpoint - but, you'll be very, very lonely up there :-)
After a while you get used to high shipping costs and having to mail order most things from Freestyle, Photographer's Formulary, Bostick and Sullivan, B& H etc. Once saving grace is the current high value of the AUD vs USD. I currently favour Freestyle for most things. Order on Sunday night, shows up next Tuesday or Wednesday at my Sydney front door. Still amazes me.
Hope you enjoy your time is this fine country.
