About Shanna

My love for travel started twenty years ago while in college when I took a job as a Travel Agent for a local travel agency. After college, I worked weekends at a Houston-based tour operator before opening my own online travel agency in 2003. Although I no longer have my agency, I’ve remained a licensed travel agent to continuously learn and maintain my knowledge on all things travel. I have a true passion for exploring new cities and diving into the local culture of any place I visit. If travel is a calling, I claim it 100%.

Being a wife, momma, and career chick leaves almost no time for much else, however aside from those priorities, travel is next on my list! My bucket list stays filled as I slowly cross through new destinations several times a year. Finding the time to travel is the hard part – planning and the anticipation of my next journey is the easiest.

Here at Going Somewhere Soon, you’ll find travel-inspiring articles, guides, tips, and ideas that are focused mainly on shorter vacations that last 2-4 days with several longer vacations sprinkled in to round everything out. With my limited vacation time, I’ve found a good rhythm that still affords me the opportunity to explore new places and destinations and maintain the perfect work-life-travel balance. I hope you’ll follow along and grab and few ideas to help plan your next adventure or two — even when time is limited!
