I’m Adriana, a native of Costa Rica who was living in the US minding my own business till I met my husband on a solo trip in Europe. In 2012 I choose to leave my busy city life in the states and pursue a life of travel and writing, dividing my time between my husbands home country of Germany and Costa Rica with our little one in tow! Big change, Expat life, Big beer and Good times! I’ve created Changing Plate to share the culture & beauty from living and traveling in both countries along with my experiences as a traveling mother. I hope you enjoy your time here, I love hearing from readers so please stop in and introduce yourselves, I like having names to the people I connect with. Thank you, Gracias, Danke!

Is It Really That Christmas Time of Year?  Posted on 12/12/2014

Our Casita  Posted on 12/10/2014
When I started this journey I knew I had a nice place to stay for as long as I wanted and that I’d be traveling the first few weeks so It was safe to not look for a place of our own right away. When I was ready I did a little...

Farm, Food and Art in the Rainforest  Posted on 12/10/2014

A Day in San Jose, Tico Style  Posted on 12/01/2014
When I was growing up I would often overhear my mother and her friends talk about how good the Chinese food was in Costa Rica and how impossible it was to find good Arroz Chino Fried Rice in the US. I’ll admit I’m a sucker for...

Courtyard by Marriott, Airport Alajuela Costa Rica  Posted on 12/01/2014
I stayed at this Marriott location for a three night stay in Nov 2014, choosing it over the many other options for two reasons, it was less than 5 minutes from the airport via free shuttle and a Walmart next door I could walk to. After a...

Cheese Tasting in the Barrio  Posted on 12/01/2014
Can I just tell you how much I love the word “Barrio”? In Spanish it means neighborhood but usually said with a little added meaning, like where I belong, where my people are, I think it sounds beautifully ethnic. I may go back...
