The perfect vacation kit?

I have gotten body and lenses together for basically all photographic areas I do. Except for vacation where I struggle to find the balance between function, weight and price (don't want to bring too expensive stuff).

Maybe you have the answer and can put together a good kit?

What the kit needs to do:

  • Shot nature scenery fairly (some with the sun in the frame)
  • Shot city scenery fairly (some with the sun in the frame)
  • Shot indoors fairly, like interiors and a person eating across the table in a restaurant etc.
  • Shot environmental portraits fairly (a person with the background = the typical "I was here" shot)
  • Shot regular one person portrait fairly (somewhat blurred background, but don't need to be totally obliterated)
  • Shot two people selfies fairly

Since this is the FE forum, a kit based on that is most welcome. But can you solve the above with any other brand or type of camera in full or parts, I welcome that as well.

So how does your kit for this look? What does it cost and what is the weight?

Prices and weights can be found here (or choose your own favorite store):
(you need to click in on an item and select "Specs" to find the weight)

Thanks for the help and best regards from Sweden!
