Good idea! :)

"Hi, I am Reto, a traveller from Switzerland" in German would be:
1. "Hallo/Hoi, ich bin Reto, ein Reisender aus der Schweiz" or
2. "Hallo/Hoi, ich bin Reto, ich komme aus der Schweiz" (I'm coming from Switzerland) or
3. "Guten Tag, ich bin Reto aus der Schweiz"

You wouldn't say "I'm a traveller", this sounds strange.
"Guten Tag" is more formal.

"Hi, I am Reto, a traveller from Switzerland" in Swiss-German would be:
1. "Hoi, ich bin de Reto, en Reisende us de Schwiiz" or
2. "Hoi, ich bin de Reto, ich chome vo de Schwiiz" or (I'm coming from Switzerland) or
3. "Grüezi, ich bin de Reto us de Schwiiz"

Again, "I'm a traveller" sounds strange and "Grüezi" is more formal.

There is no real (official!) written Swiss-German, so you can write it as it sounds like :) Written Swiss-German is only used by young Swiss, at school or in business environment we have to write in German. And as there are so many dialects, every Swiss writes it in his own way.

"Hi, I am Reto, a traveller from Switzerland" in French would be:
"Salut, je m'appelle Reto, je suis un voyageur de la Suisse."

I don't know Italian and Rhaeto-Romanic...
