XF 18-55mm vs. XF 16mm f2.8

Hello experts,

I’m new to the Fuji system (and to serious photography in general). I’ve decided to purchase the X-T30 and I’m having a tough dilemma between two lens options:

1. X-T30 + 18-55mm kit
2. X-T30 body + 16mm f2.8

I’ll be mostly doing travel, landscape and street. But I want something flexible enough to start with. The 16mm appeals to me mainly because of its weight and portability, but I’m not sure if being constrained to a fixed focal length of 16mm would be a good choice for a beginner like me. On the other hand, the 18-55 feels a bit bulky on the rather lightweight body of the X-T30, which might make me lazy in terms of carrying it with me all day and taking it out of my bag to take photos.
Any thoughts, ideas or recommendations? 
Thanks!

Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
