Depends what sort of travelling and what type of subjects you like.

The 14-140 MkII is the one lens solution, I like video so I prefer the power zooms:

If you are really travelling light the Pana 14-42x is very compact and is enough for most things if you want more reach the 45-175x goes with that very nicely.

The above zooms struggle in low light so either add the 20mm F1.7 pancake, a tripod or go with a F2.8 zoom , but as you say they cost quite a bit more.

The kit lens with the GM1 is also very compact and well thought of.  There is a lot of choice in zooms for M43, they are all good now.
