View from the Riva celebrates its 50,000th reader!


This week View from the Riva recorded its 50,000 reader!  So to celebrate our four year love affair with Croatia, here’s some of our favorite photos–all done with my simple Blackberry phone camera–not all of which appeared in the blog.  Thanks for reading!  More to come!!
