Eric Chamberlain

I'm kimkim's Head of Destination Development, focused on helping more travelers have amazing experiences in all of our 90+ destinations around the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Although I've traveled to six continents over the years, Greece, Italy, Norway, and South Africa are my areas of greatest expertise."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My love of travel stretches back to a childhood spent exploring the great outdoors throughout the western US with my family, but my first opportunity for extended international travel came during undergrad, when I studied abroad in Berlin, Germany. It was my first time in Europe, and I spent virtually every weekend exploring different corners of the continent, from Ireland to Hungary. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"For my honeymoon, I spent three months backpacking with my wife in Southeast Asia. We traveled from Thailand down through Malaysia and Singapore and into Indonesia. While work or academic commitments have normally limited the time I could spend traveling and forced me to move faster through destinations than I would have liked, during this extended adventure we were able to really immerse ourselves in the places we visited, and explore off-the-beaten-path destinations. Highlights included a city-wide water fight during Songkran (Thai New Year's) in Bangkok, hiking in Malaysia's Cameron Highlands, eating delicious home-cooked meals in Singapore, exploring temples near Yogyakarta on Java, and scuba diving among wrecks and colorful reefs on the north coast of Bali."
