I am trying to pack as light as possible for the move (getting a furnished place, etc.) but based on your experiences on the islands is there anything that I should be sure to take (that is impossible to find there or outrageously expensive).
Arby's...Burger King...Taco Bell....you can barter with these items! Haha! But, seriously, IMHO we have just about anything you'd need here...and what we don't have, you can find on eBay...Bring your toiletries, shorts, T-shirts, a swimsuit, a pair of closed toes shoes, sandals, a couple button-up shirts or blouses with collars, a pair of slacks, a pair of jeans, a pair of sneakers, sunglasses, a towel...maybe a laptop computer, if ya have it...carry about a grand, or so in cash and and get a cashier's check for the rest of your cash, which you can use to open a bank account here...ID/passport/birth cert...ATM card linked to an account in the States, in case you need ready access to money...I moved here with just two sea bags from when I was in the Navy...and I still brought too much!
Keep the memories, loose the stuff.
what didnt i bring......
