Welcome!

If this is your first time here, welcome! If you love weekend getaways, slow travel and affordable luxury – you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re a solo traveller, or a family of globe-trotters, I’m sure you’ll find something to inspire you, plus loads of tips for doing it yourself!

Le Long Weekend is a blog for people who love to travel well.

Travelling well means making a deeper connection with the place you are travelling to, whether that’s through the culture, the history, or the natural surroundings. It’s about travelling beyond the resort, finding the real hidden gems, uncovering the local stories, travelling consciously, and having loads of fun along the way!

So who is behind Le Long Weekend?

Hi, I’m Nadine, a native New Zealander who just can’t sit still! Always with the next adventure on my mind, I currently spend my days getting to know France, my adopted home country, while wrangling my husband Julien, 4yo son Arthur, and Harvey & Chloe – our passport-wielding pups along for the ride!

Join us as we take you on our explorations around Europe, one long weekend at a time…
