I would not want to travel without a long-ish zoom lens. Wildlife, portraits, architectural features, geographical features, cultural events, or even news events. It's the best way to photograph people, if you're into that, without being intrusive or obvious.

A hot air balloon rally, 240mm on a crop sensor.

The only prime lens I regularly travel with is an 85mm macro.

Thanks for sharing. What telephoto focal length/zoom range do you travel with?
