Dita (or Ditka to her friends) was born in Vlašim, a small town in central Bohemia. After high school, she left for the lively Czech town of Olomouc, and before long it became her new home. She studied recreation and outdoor sports and traveled throughout Europe, where she began to lead cycling trips. Nearly five years ago, Dita relocated to Prague and is currently finishing her studies to become a paramedic. When not guiding or showing guests the hidden gems of the Czech Republic, she lectures and teaches about first aid and wilderness first aid. One of her biggest hobbies is baking and trying new recipes, so don’t be surprised if a homemade candy or treat is waiting for you before a ride or transfer!
