Welcome. I’m Nadine.

Hailing from down under (New Zealand/Aotearoa), I’ve fallen in love with the light, landscapes, and lifestyle of Provence, France – my home for the last 8 years.

I started Le Long Weekend when we moved here (in 2016) as a way to share our story of setting up life on the other side of the world, and to help others discover the lesser-frequented areas of France.

Since then, running this blog has become my full-time job and I couldn’t feel more privileged that I get to share this journey with you!

Nothing motivates or ignites me quite like travel does, and I hope that by sharing my adventures and travel tips from around Europe, I can inspire you to travel well, tread lightly, and delve deeper into my favourite destinations.

My favourite:
