Explore Mali from home? Research before planning a trip? Our virtual tours and experiences offer access to the customs and culture of known places and hidden gems. All virtual tours give back to the people involved.
Monique Teggelove, Papillon Fairtrade’s founder, has traveled to more than fifty countries on all seven continents. Writing is her way to share about her experiences and her way of life. My Camino is her first book.
Op 24 oktober vertelt Monique over haar reizen, wat haar drijft, wat ze ervaart en wat ze tegenkomt. Een inspirerende en avontuurlijke middag waar je bij wilt zijn.
When tourism came to a standstill in 2020, Monique Teggelove decided to bring Mali to the world. With the Papillon Reizen team, she set to work creating virtual tours and experiences, which later resulted in founding Papillon Fairtrade.
Social entrepreneurship has always been a priority to Monique. Through fair payments and giving back to the people involved, the guides, cooks, artists and local projects benefit as well.
Papillon Fairtrade offers carefully selected and created products, including virtual tours and experiences, one-off necklaces made by Monique, and books about her travels.
Together we make the world a better place.

About My Camino
— Since hearing of Monique's journey on the Camino, I have often thought that I would like to do this too. With "My Camino" I am able to experience Monique's journey along with her, and it opened my eyes to how I can walk this journey every day. As I journey through life, I too am presented with people and situations that reflect back to me experiences and personalities that trigger a reaction in me. As Monique says, time for inner work. It is when we can truly accept people for who they are, and where they are on their journey, that we learn to accept ourselves for who we are and where we are on our journey. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is in search of inner peace.Feb 2021

— Just another Camino book? No, this time I was pleasantly surprised. Monique managed to turn 'her' Camino in an intriguing, almost exciting book. It is about the walk, and also about love, self-image, doubt and grow. A very personal story, made accessible for a larger crowd.Sep 2012
