Sonya Little - Owner / Agent of Travel

Specializing in Family Travel, Group Cruises, Expert at Jamaica, Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Africa and beyond.  

Our mission is to offer professional travel recommendations and guidance for everyone to create travel memories that will last a lifetime by creating fun, enjoyable and relaxing travel experiences to make their vacation wishes become memories.

I have been in the travel industry for over 8 years as an agent and now an owner of Sandcastle Wishes which has been a dream of mine from the beginning.  I started out practicing criminal defense law in Birmingham, Alabama, which led to the decision of becoming a stay-at-home mom with the birth of my first child.  My husband and I are dedicated to our family, but most importantly to God and each other.

I have successfully grown my travel agency into a multi-million dollar agency in less than 2 years, strongly from the support of my husband, family and friends.  I am dedicated to my clients and their needs before, during and after their vacation.   My clients are the reason I am in this industry, to make sure everyone has the chance to make magical memories all over God’s earth is my mission.  I will go to the ends of the earth for my clients to experience the vacation of a lifetime.  

I got into travel by destiny, honestly.  The thoughts of becoming a stay-at-home mom grew with each dream of having children.  Through many trials and difficulties, we finally had a child and the desire to cherish every waking moment led to me closing my law office of 8 years and staying home with my daughter.  When she got older, I grew weary and decided to find something I could do from home.  I stumbled across a Disney Vacation Planner position and jumped on it, since we are a true Disney Family.  I became a Disney only agent and grew exponentially then decided to branch off and venture into a full-service travel agency.  I didn’t want to limit my clients or myself to only one option of vacation.  My world travels grew into a passion and desire to see God’s world and be the starting point for others to begin making their vacation memories. 

My favorite place to travel thus far has been to Uganda, Africa.  The experience as a whole was life-altering, to say the least.  Anytime you can immerse your self into another culture on another continent, and have a life-altering experience, is a vacation of a lifetime. This mission to help others in another part of the world was like none other I have ever experienced.  To be immersed into the daily activities, culture, palate and lifestyle of a foreign culture is what I crave when I travel.  I love the ‘off-the-beaten path’ types of experiences when I travel.

My favorite travel memory has to be one I just returned from.  My husband’s and I had our first vacation experience out of the country together since our honeymoon in 2004.  We traveled to Jamaica for this experience and I wanted to be a tourist.  Usually, when I go to Jamaica, it’s always for resort inspections and business, so I don’t venture out much while I am there alone.  We went to Dunns River Falls in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and went zip-lining together on an excursion. To have this experience together was amazing.  It was one of the most amazing things we have done together as a couple since our honeymoon.  We laughed, and loved, until we cried.  The memories we brought back as a couple will never be topped.  

The best travel tip I can ever give anyone is to relax and enjoy the vacation.  Let me take all the stress out of everything.  Don’t get so wrapped up in your plans.  Things will happen, make sure you just go with the flow and enjoy the ride!!  Don’t book someone else’s vacation. Make sure you plan it around your family’s needs and wants, just because your friend loved Italy and the Parthenon, doesn’t mean your family is ready for that big vacation right now.  That’s where having me help you with destination planning is priceless.
