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.

你是否曾經旅行過并告訴你自己:“我能住在這里”?在去牙買加的一次旅途中,卡麗薩·馬汀思考了這個想法——也事實上將它完成了。

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年三月紐約市一個漫長而惡劣的冬季期間。馬汀和她的男朋友杰夫·貝利澤爾突發奇想決定馬上跑去牙買加躲避雪天。

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.

在那時,馬汀在紐約的烹飪界有著一份理想的工作:Tasting Table的品牌主理人,這是一家美食熱愛者的線上聚集地。她同時也在國家電視節目如《早安美國》中出現過。

But there was something about that trip that spoke to Martin — profoundly.

但是,有關那趟旅程的什么東西深深地印在了馬汀的內心。



“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.”

“在那個漫長的周末里,“床加早餐”理念(一種旅店形式)的想法蹦了出來,我們想著‘為什么不呢?’那是有可能發生的,而且有可能就發生在這兒,在牙買加,”30歲的馬汀說道。“那是我們第一次認真考慮這個想法。”

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.

在四個月里,馬汀辭了職,并和貝利澤爾踏上了去牙買加創造The Runaway的道路,一個有著“床加早餐”理念的想法開始成為一個生活方式旅游品牌。

“We ran away from the cold and the typical 9-5 to follow our dreams and create this new life,”says Martin.

“我們從寒冷與典型的朝九晚五中逃離出來追尋我們的夢,并創造了這個全新的生活,”馬汀說。

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.

這也并非只是典型的“床加早餐”。The Runaway Jamaica是第一家成功在Kickstarter上得到資助的“床加早餐”理念的品牌。支持者們捐獻了將近47000美元來幫助它成為現實。
