Fujifilm XF 16mm f1.4 - for travel?

Hello fellow lens nerds!
I just ordered myself the glorious 16mm XF lens and I am a little bit indecisive about my travel to my second home Indonesia.
I want to keep things small and simple and want to bring only 1 lens for my months in Indonesia.
Initially I wanted to bring the good old 18-55mm "kit" lens (which I love). I am aware that it would be the more wise decision and definitely a more versatile lens.
But now after finally getting the 16mm beast, I tend to choose this lens as my travel buddy.
I am mostly a wide shooter and I totally love fast lenses and the close minimal focus distance is a big big plus as well for me. Also the weather sealing is awesome for this humid country.
So would you guys recommend me being rational and just put the 18-55mm in my pocket or would you also take the risk to be less flexible but go for the amazing 16mm lens?
Best wishes!
