Lens for travel/holiday with the D700 ?

For my new D700 I have a 17-35 and 50mm std lens; and will soon acquire some 70/80mm based zoom (possibly the 70-200 VR).

However, every now and then I go on holidays/trips where I need to travel lite and could do with a single zoom starting at 24mm or 28mm and going up to 120mm or more. Basically the common type lens most people have with their D60 and D90.

Not wanting to spend too much on it (budget $500 or less - it will just be for occasional trip usage), what lenses would people recommend ?
and I don't mind if they are second-hand or non-nikon.
