Welcome to Words With Tanya!

My name is Tanmaya Godbole, and I started this blog mainly to share my honeymoon pictures and experiences with my family and friends.

Very quickly, I fell in love with blogging, and this blog has now expanded to include travel guides, travel stories and favorite recipes.

I am a travel blogger, but not the typical kind who quit her 9 – 5 job and travels all over the world, all the time. While that sounds seriously amazing, it is not an option for most of us, so instead, I will show you how to keep your 9 – 5 job with its 3 weeks of vacation a year, and still fulfill your travel dreams!

I hope you find something useful here, and if all you take away from it is the inspiration to travel and live a beautiful life, it will be worth it!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!


Q) Why is this website called Words with Tanya?

A) ‘Words with Tanya’ is meant to be a website where you can converse with me, thus, having words with Tanya (but in a good way, not in the mean way like “I’ll have a word with her”). My name is Tanmaya, but my grandfather used to call me Tanya (pronounced “tuhnya”) and he was partially responsible for my love for writing, since he wrote me a limerick for my 7th birthday and it inspired me to write poems!

P.S : Have you ever played the game “Words with Friends”? It’s super fun, try it!

Q) What is your ‘9 – 5’ job?

A) I work as a Software Engineer, and it’s not really 9 – 5, sometimes it’s 10 – 6, or 9 – 9, basically until you get the job done! However, it’s fun, exciting and very rewarding. If you are looking for a career, it’s a good one to have!
