Christian Chumbley

With an anthropology degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Christian has led trips in 20 countries (including South Africa, Botswana, Bhutan, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam) and designed trips in 16 countries (from India to Mexico). Today he’s found his way back to Berkeley, where he lives with his wife and two young daughters, and works as Backroad’s Asia & Africa Regional Manager. Christian says, “I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to return seasonally to my favorite parts of the world and share them with others.” To Christian, who was born in Germany and “raised all over,” the most rewarding thing about traveling with Backroads is “the opportunity for interaction with the locals—people across the globe readily identify with someone riding a bike or walking down a path, so genuine conversations happen spontaneously...the veil is pulled back far more quickly.”
