This is a video of an interview of Peggy Gregory-Jenkins – one of Encounter Overland’s first paying passengers and one of EO’s first employees (Although I don’t think she was paid too much. No surprises there!) Peggy married Stuart Jenkins one of the founders of EO with Tony Jones.
This interviewwas recorded in September 2015 in Niagara Falls at the staff gathering of a company called G Adventures. The person interviewing Peggy is Bruce Poon Tip, the founder of G Adventures.
Peggy tells how she and a friend signed up with Tony and Stuart in 1967 in Istanbul on EO’s first trip to Kathmandu. For the exorbitant price of US$150 Peggy and her friend travelled to Kathmandu and then back to England.
Thanks go to G Adventures and its media team for their kindness in locating and sending on this recording.
