We had a chance to catch up with Dia Adams, aka “The Deal Mommy” for the next round of our Expert Interview series. Dia is a wife and mom to 2 kids, age 13 and 10. She grew up foreign service and her husband was in consulting, so she has lived all over the world from Australia to Beijing to Thailand to Ireland – where her son was born. After coming back home and starting her family, she felt like her travel life was coming to a halt. She wanted to find a way to get her family back into the travel groove. After a trip to Panama (see below), she started researching how to travel for free and has been doing it ever since. Hopefully our chat with Dia will help you and your family catch the travel bug!
