Author of the best-selling book ‘Swiss Watching’, Diccon Bewes addresses the kinds of questions often asked by expats in Switzerland. But Diccon has a special way of answering them.
A self-confessed chocoholic, Diccon is a resident of the Swiss capital, Bern. He’s found the city to be a great base for exploring the country in order to write about it, and – for swissinfo.ch – to make videos.
Diccon’s other booksexternal link include ‘Around Switzerland in 80 Maps’ and ‘Slow Train to Switzerland’, which tells the story of the first conducted tour of Switzerland in 1863 and what it’s like to do that tour today.
