My Background

A native of Macon, GA, I graduated from Vanderbilt University having studied Biology and Special Education. After careers in teaching, child raising, catering and retail sales, I have found my true calling in travel.

TRIPS IN THE VILLAGE, a successful boutique agency in Jacksonville FL, was established by me 20 years ago and is recognized for its sterling reputation.

I am a frequent traveler and am proud to say that I have been to all 7 continents. My affiliation with Virtuoso has enabled me to establish a worldwide network of contacts which I utilize to provide the most unique and personal itineraries for my clients.

Every detail attended to…..

Russell Glasheen and her team at Trips in the Village are tops! Russell has been planning mostly European travel for us since 2000. She is attentive to every detail and makes excellent recommendations relative to our needs. Obviously some of our trips have been better than others but that has always had to do with the individual travel experience and imponderables such as weather, etc. and nothing to do with Russell's meticulous planning. Additionally we have benefited tremendously from Russell's connections with personal guides in cities all over the world. While we were reluctant at first to hire these guides, we are so grateful that we put our trust in Russell and decided to give personal tours a chance. The knowledgeable and experienced guides served only to enrich our journeys! Twice we have had to cancel trips due to health issues and again we are grateful that Russell encouraged us to purchase trip insurance and later went out of her way to help us recoup our losses.

Smart and efficient

Back to 5 Star after a change of ownership.

1. Stafford has gotten over its missteps after being transferred from the Kempinski organization. 2. We flew on a Virgin Atlantic flight with a DAL ticket. The plane over and back was an Airbus 330-300. Neither Valerie or I liked the seats in the upper class section. One thing we do like is the Terminal 3 check-in for Virgin flights at Heathrow.

Great trip to Rome


Reviewed on: 29 Nov 2016

Russell put together an amazing trip to Rome. We spent 10 days with a single guide and driver who learned our tastes and made appropriate modifications to the schedule of touring along the way. Both were very knowledgeable and professional and spoke very fluent English. We didn't stand in any lines, and I am confident we saw everything essential to experience Rome. By the way, we were worried about the weather in November, but it turned out to be cool, but not cold, and we got rained on (barely) only once.
