Go Away With … Sasha Goodlett

WNBA center Sasha Goodlett currently plays for South Korea’s Woori Bank Hansae. “Adjusting to the culture and the language barrier was challenging,” says the 24-year-old basketball star. “It’s hard trying to understand someone when they don’t know English and you don’t know Korean. But, I am learning Korean! So, hopefully by the end of the year I will be relatively fluent in it.”

Go Away With … Chelsea Cain

New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Cain’s latest thriller, “One Kick” (Simon and Schuster, $25.99), kicks off a new series of novels centered on a former abductee, who becomes immersed in a missing child case. Based out of Portland, Oregon, Cain says nothing completes a road trip like a gas station Payday bar. As for her dream trip? “Murder on the Orient Express!” says Cain, 42.

Go Away With … William Shatner

We know William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk on “Star Trek,” as Sgt. Hooker on “T.J. Hooker” and as Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting’s money-savvy dad on the Priceline commercials. He has also performed spoken word renditions of songs by Queen and the Kinks. Now, the 83-year-old actor is ready to show you how handy — or unhandy — he is at renovating his California home on the DIY Network’s latest reality series, “The Shatner Project.”

Go Away With … Sheila E.

In her new book, “The Beat of My Own Drum: A Memoir,” musician Sheila E. talks candidly about her rise to fame, her engagement to Prince and the backstory to how Lionel Richie ended up adopting her niece, Nicole.

Go Away With … Carl Reiner

I love Carl Reiner’s idea about teaching foreign languages to children when they’re young: “One of the things we should be doing is speaking to our children in at least two languages so that they are exposed to a foreign language and can grow up bilingual. If you expose a child to another language when they’re very young, they will pick it up much quicker than if you try to teach them in high school.”

Go Away With … Bob Saget

Actor Bob Saget is best known for his work on the ’80s sitcom “Full House” and as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” But the comic also has a cult following of fans that enjoy his off-color stand-up routines. Saget, 58, is also an author who writes about his life in the book, “Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian” (It Books, $26.99). A resident of Los Angeles, the entertainer describes himself as a Twitter-head

Go Away With … Lisa Loeb

Musician Lisa Loeb (of “Stay” fame) has some tips for traveling with young children: “Prepare yourself! Bring tons of snacks and activities, make sure you get a good night’s sleep before you venture out, don’t forget extra diapers and bring strollers and car seats with you. And lots of wipes. And maybe some Starbucks gift cards for the people around you on the plane.”

Go Away With … Bert Kreischer

On his Travel Channel series, “Trip Flip,” comedian and on-air personality Bert Kreischer surprises people with action-packed vacations that are designed to fulfill items on their travel bucket list. Kreischer, 41, resides in Los Angeles with his family. Of California, he says, “I absolutely love it. It stinks that I’m not here enough!” His book, “Life of the Party” (St. Martin’s Press), will be in stores on May 27.

Go Away With … Sean Astin

Actor Sean Astin encourages travelers to “look up. It might sound like a simple thing to say, but don’t have your face in a map or your phone or your stuff. I think most people get to wherever they think they need to get to and then they look up.”

Go Away With Tegan and Sara

Born in Calgary, Alberta, sisters Tegan Rain and Sara Keirsten Quin are better known as the musical duo of Tegan and Sara. The twins, 33, won three Juno Awards earlier this year in Canada for their work on their seventh studio album, “Heartthrob.” But the song that has helped earn them a new (and young!) fan base is “Everything is Awesome.” They recorded the infectiously catchy song for “The LEGO Movie.”
