You want to go to France. Bistro dining in Paris, sipping through wine country, lounging around in the French Rivera – who wouldn’t want these things in his life?
But, while you may be very excited to visit this beautiful country, it may be the case that your wife (or husband) doesn’t share your excitement…. trust me, I’ve been there!
She will say ridiculous things like “it’s too far for long a weekend trip” and “my boss will fire me if I take any more vacation time.”
If you do happen to encounter a situation as unfortunate as this, I am here to tell you that there is no need to panic. Why? Well, because I have come up with a very detailed, very PROVEN method to convince your wife or husband to take that trip to France that you have always dreamed about!
Step 1 – Show her how romantic Paris can be…
Paris is the most romantic city on Earth! Remind your loved one that Paris the only place in the world where you can champagne toast at the top of the Effiel tower, evening cruise on the River Seine, or stroll hand in hand through Luxembourg Gardens!
Remind her that Paris is always a good idea…
Step 2 – Feed her French cheese, pour her French wine, and stuff macarons in her mouth
Adopt a French themed diet and limit any and all food and drink consumption to products sourced directly from France. This really is going to take some effort on your end, and may or may not include throwing out every item currently in your pantry to be replaced with something French.
This is not the time to think frugal, you are trying to get to France here! Get the good stuff and go for the Chateau d’Yquem Sauternes, Chateau Lafite Rothschild, or even some Domaine Romanée Conti! Match it the most expensive Brie de Meaux and Camembert cheeses and finish them off with a rainbow assortment of macarons (those colorful cookie sandwich looking things).
Your goal should be to create a dependence on French cheese and wine, only then to take these things away altogether. While all things French have been removed, your wife will still crave them, providing you the perfect opportunity to offer to take her directly to the source!
Sure, the price tag on all this imported cheese and wine will be hefty, but you said you wanted to go to France, right?
Step 3 – Offer to redeem your 140k Skymiles to fly her roundtrip in Delta One Business Class
Chicks dig Business Class. If you have Skymiles you are probably trying to get rid of them, and what better way to than flying your wifey in style across the Atlantic! Sure, Delta’s 767 & 777 Business Class are not top-tier, but you wife won’t know that until she gets on the plane – and at that point it will be too late!
She can lie down, get some rest on that Westin heavenly bedding, and be ready to go by morning time touchdown at CDG!
Don’t let something you dare let your significant other keep you both from experiencing all that France has to offer!
Follow my 3 step process EXACTLY as I have outlined above, and I can guarantee that you will find yourself on that French vacation before you can say oui oui!
What are some other methods you have employed to convince your wife or husband to go to [insert destination of your choice]!?
