I was born and grew up in Rotterdam, but in 1968 I settled in Basle in Switzerland, where I lived for some 30 years. The user name "Dezwitser" is Dutch and means "the Swiss guy".
At the end of 1999 I moved "for 1 or 2 years" to Vientiane, Laos, to work as a volunteer in one of the ministries. Now, however, still in Vientiane, I am retired and take life somewhat easier (I must have adapted to the Laotian way of life).
I have done a lot of travelling in Europe and some in Central and South America, and later in Southeast Asia, but not much compared to many of those insatiable trampers of today. I guess I just belong to an older generation...
Besides the English and German Wikivoyage I sometimes contribute to the German, the Dutch and the English Wikipedias; most of my modest contributions are about Laos and subjects related to it. (WT-en) Dezwitser 07:21, 10 September 2007 (EDT)
