Hi my name is Bettyl

I was comfortably single in a small house in Holton, KS, minding my own business when I met a guy on the internet. Three years later, I am on a plane to New Zealand to make my home there with a ready-made family. That was 2006. We now live in a house surrounded by dairy pastures and no neighbors within shouting distance. I am 'retired' and take a lot of photos--which includes yelling, 'Stop the car!' a lot (but not as much as it used to). 

My first blog is about my thoughts of my new home and was started to keep in touch with family and friends back home. It's called My views of New Zealand.

My photoblog, where I share some of my many, many photos is Photographing New Zealand​.​
