Advice on whether to buy a Telephoto lens for Nikon D700

I used to have a Nikon D80 + 18-200mm lens

I now have a Nikon D700 + a 24-70 mm lens.

The 24-70 lens I use as a walk-about lens ( though very heavy for a middle aged women - building my muscles with weights at the gym)

I am visiting Europe - London- Ireland and Budapest in September 2010

This is where I need some wise advice.

My photography incorporates Landscape/Seascape , street photography, architecture, candid, travel - whatever catches my eye.

I would love to do all this with my 24-70mm lens. But can I?

Like all photographers. amateur like me or professionals desire the sharpest photograph with the quickest lens hoping for the best outcome possible and not be limited by gear choice.

I dislike changing lenses - but if necessary will.

So my question is do I need another lens? - like a telephoto.

If so, what is recommended?

My wish list, if I have to have another lens is

1. have to be a light weight
( can't carry two heavy lenses)
2. Fast as possible
3. Sharp

It does not have to be a Nikon but a good 3rd Party lens that works well with the D700
