Experienced travellers

I am about to head off for 2 months travel in Europe - a combination of time in big cities and more rural areas. I have the EM-1 plus 12-40 Pro, 40 - 150 and the 45 1.8. I bought this kit to replace my Canon DLSR because I was tired of lugging the Canon around, particularly when travelling. I know from experience that I don't like switching in and out of lens too much.

So my main question for experienced travellers is, do you think a long lens is necessary when travelling? I'd like to get away with just the 12-40 for most of the trip, I'll take the 45 to have on the camera at night. I mainly like to shoot street, general sights and snaps of the family.

Is that enough of a range?
