Dog Rescue and Pet Nutrition Expert
Diana Bocco is a traveler, adventurer and dog lover who currently lives in Prague, Czech Republic. Before she started writing full-time, Diana worked as a nutritionist in NYC, a language teacher in Siberia, and a journalist in Vietnam.
Dogs and travel have always been Diana’s passions. She adopted a dog in Russia, a second one in Thailand (where she also helped with a sterilization and rescue program for stray dogs) and then eventually drove 7 hours to Slovakia to pick up a third dog from a shelter there. Because what could be more fun than weirdly combining her two passions into a lot of very awkward, expensive travel with dogs (no, wait…)
Diana’s areas of expertise include nutrition and fitness topics (in addition to being a nutritionist, Diana is also a certified personal trainer), debt reduction and stretching your money, travel, and a few other random things. Oh, and anything dog-related, of course. After all, dragging your dogs around the world with you teaches you a few (or a million) things about traveling, nightmarish paperwork, being almost kicked out of airports when your dogs bark non-stop, and patience (lots and lots of patience).
In addition to writing for anywhere from Yahoo! to National Geographic to Popular Mechanics, Diana also runs the soon-to-be-officially-launched Weird Prague website, where visitors to the cobblestone-rich European capital can discover all the unusual things to see and do in between visits to castles and beer gardens.
When she’s not writing, Diana likes to take her dogs on hiking adventures, complete courses on topics her dogs would approve of (like her most recent Pet Nutrition Certification), take photos, visit haunted places, and lift weights whenever possible (muscles are always a useful thing when you’re out hunting for things that go bump in the night).
