Thanks again for such a lovely welcome to my homeland.
Strange why more buses weren't put on for flights actually arriving and departing from Sumburgh? We arrived 5 minutes after the bus departure time and would have had to wait ages for another?

Can anyone tell me if/when the next Hamefarin might be ?
The last one was in 2010 and from the (scant) information that I've managed to find, they are only held every 25 years ? Will I really have to wait until 2035 ?
Are there any 'smaller' hamefarin events held in Scalloway or elsewhere ?
I'd like to arrange to meet (in Shetland) other relations of Shetland descent, who live in the US and in England, and it would be great if this could be done around some 'official' kind of event - Up Helly Aa or the Hamefarin, though the time of year that Up Helly Aa is held would make it difficult to visit that event.
Any comments ?

The Shetland Family History Society has had events that feature a certain Shetland surname and get descendants to join them. I believe they have some planned this summer.
