Nithin’s first book!

Traveling Softly and Quietly is about that which we all want in our lives – meaning – through the tale of a young man seeking his purpose in life.

Coca gives his readers an intimate look into a unique journey across the world but, more importantly, the evolution of a young man’s outlook as traveling changes him each step of the way. Coca is a fearless author, placing himself in a vulnerable light that allows the reader to understand and relate to him—an impressive and rare feat for a young author. History, humor, and fun-loving anecdotes made me feel like I was right there on the journey. As someone who lives for long-term travel and exploration, I believe this book is a must-read for the spirited wanderer and the vicarious homebody alike. Faaria Voliski

International Storyteller and Writer,

As with most travelers who take a big trip, Nithin learns learns a great deal about the world and its people, but as I read Traveling Softly and Quietly, the most powerful and moving story is the one going on internally. If you are interested in getting inside the mind of a long-term traveler and seeing the opportunities for personal growth, then Nithin’s book offers a fantastic glimpse. Adam Seper


Great writing, great story, and great honesty by a talented new writer who shares his journey across multiple countries for meaning, identity, and inspiration…i found it thoughtfully written and a thoroughly enjoyable read!
