Can anyone point me in the right direction as to why "questions" is
being prepended to the route and how to avoid that from happening.
This is a basic HTML problem, not a Rails one.

Your link is a relative link to the file “www.somewhere.com” in the
current directory, *not* a link to the site www.somewhere.com. You need
an explicit method, e.g.:

<a href='http://www.somewhere.com/'>
