Opla, A Travel Newsletter
Opla is a personal project, a long-form travel newsletter created with my friend and fellow traveler, Ling Luke, when I was traveling full-time. Launched at the end of 2018, Opla is where we shared travel tips, recommendations from our favorite locals and the treasures we found as we explore the world.
Within a year, we amassed 400 newsletter subscribers. Each newsletter featured three stories, including an interview with an international tastemaker. We’ve interviewed a mixologist from Hong Kong, a writer from London, an artist in Detroit and a hotelier in Cairo, just to name a few.
Here are a few favorite issues: There's something about Paris, Beauty secrets from around the world, How far would you travel for art? and How to travel better.
