(Editor’s note: Martine Cajucom-Ho has experienced life in different parts of the world. After residing in Hong Kong for a few years, she lived in New Delhi for one. At seven years old, our #ABSCBNLifestyleInspo moved to the States where she grew up in. The #girlboss also studied photography in Prague in her early 20s, worked as a creative consultant at American Apparel for five years, then moved back to Manila to get Sunnies off the ground along with Georgina Wilson, Jess Wilson, and Bea Soriano. Read on to know some insights she has gained from her travels!)
When I was 21, I was living in Prague for six months. I studied photography. I made some lifelong friends while I was there and it was very eye-opening. I was just 21, and I had never even been away from home before. It made me grow up and it also made me experience life in a way I hadn’t before!

I think traveling in general opens your mind to everything. It opens your mind to how people live, how people communicate, and it gives you more empathy towards the world. I think it’s the most valuable thing you could do for yourself!
