3. Cook some seriously other-worldly food, like this spicy Thai soup.

You know where you and your partner come from -- and where you've never been. Pick a new type of cuisine and experiment with it. Really push the both of you out of your comfort zones and try new things -- like you would on a vacation to an exotic destination. Try this recipe.

5. Throw on some music the two of you don't normally listen to. Try some Coltrane, or some Arturo Sandoval.

Enhance the feeling of being in a strange place by trading in the usual sonic fare for something a little more foreign to your space.

10. Cut the cords. Turn off your cell phones, and unplug the landlines.


This is the one most people forget. You could do all of the above and really set the mood in a perfect way, only to have it ruined by interuptions from the outside world. If you were really that far from home, the office and your friends and your family and everyone wouldn't be able to reach you with a simple text message. An hour or two of radio silence won't kill you, and it will certainly help the intimacy go to a whole new level.
