  • Have you ever gone on vacation and said to yourself, “I could live here?” On a trip to Jamaica, Kalisa Martin entertained that idea —and actually went through with it. 你是否曾经旅行过并告诉你自己:“我能住在这里”?在去牙买加的一次旅途中,卡丽萨·马汀思考了这个想法——也事实上将它完成了。 It was during a lingering and nasty New York City winter in March 2014. Martin and her boyfriend Jeff Belizaire decided to escape the snow by taking a last-minute getaway to Jamaica. 那是在2014年三月纽约市一个漫长而恶劣的冬季期间。马汀和她的男朋友杰夫·贝利泽尔突发奇想决定马上跑去牙买加躲避雪天。 At the time, Martin had a dream job in the New York culinary world: brand director at Tasting Table, a digital destination for culinary enthusiasts. She also appeared on national television shows like Good Morning America. 在那时,马汀在纽约的烹饪界有着一份理想的工作:Tasting Table的品牌主理人,这是一家美食热爱者的线上聚集地。她同时也在国家电视节目如《早安美国》中出现过。 But there was something about that trip that spoke to Martin — profoundly. 但是,有关那趟旅程的什么东西深深地印在了马汀的内心。 “That long weekend, the idea of the B&B concept came up and we thought, ‘Why not?’It could happen, and it could happen right here in Jamaica,”said 30-year-old Martin. “That was the first time we seriously considered the idea.” “在那个漫长的周末里,“床加早餐”理念(一种旅店形式)的想法蹦了出来,我们想着‘为什么不呢?’那是有可能发生的,而且有可能就发生在这儿,在牙买加,”30岁的马汀说道。“那是我们第一次认真考虑这个想法。” Within four months Martin had quit her job and was on her way to Jamaica with Belizaire to create The Runaway, a bed-and-breakfast that has grown into a lifestyle travel brand. 在四个月里,马汀辞了职,并和贝利泽尔踏上了去牙买加创造The Runaway的道路,一个有着“床加早餐”理念的想法开始成为一个生活方式旅游品牌。 “We ran away from the cold and the typical 9-5 to follow our dreams and create this new life,”says Martin. “我们从寒冷与典型的朝九晚五中逃离出来追寻我们的梦,并创造了这个全新的生活,”马汀说。 And this isn’t your average bed-and-breakfast. The Runaway Jamaica is the first successfully funded B&B on Kickstarter. Backers donated almost $47,000 to help bring the property to life. 这也并非只是典型的“床加早餐”。The Runaway Jamaica是第一家成功在Kickstarter上得到资助的“床加早餐”理念的品牌。支持者们捐献了将近47000美元来帮助它成为现实。
