Close season for football players usually means a break with friends and family in places like Marbella and Las Vegas. Unless you're Yeovil Town's Nathan Smith...
Defender Nathan has booked himself on a ten day silent retreat in India.
On a video on his twitter page Nathan said: "I have travelled to India to try something different. I have done all the party islands and they are not my scene now.
"The ten day silent retreat course will involve no speaking, no reading and no writing. I will learn meditation and different techniques in the art of living.
"It is not a religious thing, I just think that with the way the world is with all the distractions, you can sometimes fail to see the important things."
