ALOHA, MY NAME IS SINE.
I am a business coach helping others start their business, grow on social media, and get that freedom lifestyle!
AND … I AM A TRAVELHOLIC!
WHO AM I?
My name is Sine Ranch. I’m born and raised in small (and a bit rainy and cold) but great Denmark in Scandinavia, which means that there is some real Viking blood running through these veins of mine. I just made myself sound a lot cooler there, right? Fun aside. Growing up, I was never a big traveler. Being younger I was quite shy and not very outgoing. I didn’t like to meet new people, or at least I didn’t dare to! I was a late bloomer and I knew I had to start pushing my boundaries and get out of my comfort zone to evolve and be a more confident me.
WHERE DID IT START?
I took my first real trip overseas with a good friend right after high school. I had no real travel experience, and I remember how nervous I was when saying goodbye to my family at the airport. I was shaking nervously all over my body, and I was as pale as if I had seen a ghost. I remember that day as being one of the most terrifying moments ever! I was literally afraid that I was never going to see my family again. We went backpacking in the United States and Mexico for around 4 months, and that trip changed my life, and later my way of living. From that moment, I was hooked! All I wanted was to explore more of the world. So that’s what I did. It opened my eyes to travel and all the opportunities that come with it. Traveling matured me as a person taught me to be more outgoing and made me a more confident person.
After my first backpacker trip, I wasn’t home for long. I ended up traveling for almost 3 years straight and I have been unstoppable ever since. I live and breathe for traveling and I can’t imagine a life without it anymore.
I’ve traveled to many different places and thrown myself into so many different adventures already.
WHAT IS TRAVEL TO YOU?
To me, travel is much more than a great adventure, and being able to tell great stories. To me, it’s about getting out of my comfort zone, immerse myself, and try new things. I feel travel is a way to learn more about yourself and the world we live in. It’s school of life and I attend to keep educating myself for the rest of my life.

GreatWanderlust is a blog where I can share my everyday life on the Islands of Hawaii. It is furthermore a place where I can share all my travel experiences and tips for you to get some travel inspiration. I wanted my blog to be available to as many readers as possible, which is why I have decided to write in English even though my mother language is Danish.
HAWAII AND WHY?
Doing my bachelor’s in Denmark I was so fortunate to be able to do a semester somewhere else, and if you know me just a little bit I’ll grab any opportunity I can to travel, so of course, this was something I wanted to do. I ended up taking a semester in Hawaii, and I absolutely fell in love with the aloha spirit. When I came back home I had serious post-travel depression. Well, to be honest, I do tend to fall into this depressing state more or less every time I return from somewhere, haha, but this time was different. After a lot of hair-tearing and contemplating I decided to go back and do my whole master’s degree here in Hawaii. So my answer to why? Because why not get an education while living in paradise?
