“A friendly word of caution: Aussies generally love to meet new people, particularly foreigners. Americans, in particular, can be a novelty. One thing Aussies don’t like is the stereotype loud American, vying to be the centre of attention.”
“Laugh, make jokes (self-deprecating ones are always good), spark conversation with others, be genuine and you may find yourself the guest of honour. Dominate the conversation, tell everyone the US is the best country in the world, talk with the loudest voice in the room, get irate with venue staff, engage in heated discussion about politics and you will fall out of favour quickly.
Treat others with respect, be friendly and I have no doubt you will have a fantastic time.”
