Got it thx.
Waiting to hear what you did about shabbos and if they heated up any food for you?
So food situation is as follows... on the islands in greece they dont really know what or who jews are forget about kashrus and special diets so i had to explain the front desk what i want and they said sure np! But the guy that took the meal to warm up decided to present it as a reg room service meal so he opened it up and set it up nicely so after explaining to him that he shouldn't open it they brought it to us the way we wanted!

I usually just bring pom meals or similar and have the hotel heat it up.
Great pic of the sous vie!!

Most of my travels these days are with the family or with other guys who have wanderlust, so Greece isn't too high on those lists ;)
