Letters / Sarah and Shetland, you are totally wonderful

Shetland gave us wonderful travel experiences but Lerwick gave us the best ever.

On 21 August as we were about to board the ferry to leave, I realised I did not have my phone.

Using another phone, I called it and an amazing hero called Sarah answered and said she had found it downtown.

She then caught a taxi and brought it to the ferry terminal where a ferry official grabbed it from her and gave it to me and hustled me onboard through the car deck as the ferry had delayed sailing until she arrived.

What super impressive kindness and honesty, what an awesome farewell memory to take from a brilliant Shetland trip.

Please can you (or anyone) help me get in contact with my wonderful phone rescuer? I need to say thank you and at least pay for her taxi. I am forever grateful.

Sarah and Shetland, you are totally wonderful.
