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!

Smoked Paprika and Bacon Kohlrabi Soup  Posted on 07/22/2015
You can add Kohlrabi to the list of things that were new to me when I first came to Bavaria. I first tried it in raw slices with a sour cream chive dressing my mother in law made (reminds me I gotta post that!) I remember thinking its...

Braised Pork Belly Date Spread  Posted on 07/21/2015
I almost feel bad about sharing this. It’s addictive but you know what? If I’m hooked you can be hooked with me. The Dates started as a #Fridaymarketfirsts ingredient On my IG. I’d never worked with them before, only...

My Instagram  Posted on 07/21/2015
It’s hardly a secret, I love Instagram. Mostly because it doesn’t carry the ridicules chatter and mob mentality that happens frequently on Facebook, bottom line is I think people on IG simply have better...

Obatzda  Posted on 07/20/2015
Ah, Bavarian Beer gardens. In danger of sounding like a proud Bavarian…if you haven’t been to a beer garden in Bavaria you’ve never really been to a beer garden. It’s not just about beer (though admittedly at three...

Three Years and Counting in Bavaria  Posted on 07/10/2015
