Problem is there is more to it that just that
Yes I'd love to spend time with my significant other in Europe
But germany is not where I'd like to go
And sure I can go other places, but that involves most of my vacation being driving time, during break in time, the least fun time to be driving a car.
I'd like to go to Italy, or Spain, but means I'd have to waste several days getting there with associated expenses etc
Yes it's a vacation, but there are too many constraints to make it fun
And to the wife, this vacation will always be about the car.
Not about her, and trust me, that will make the vacation a little less fun
The married folks here will understand.
