Using D500 as travel camera - What lens to use?

Dear all

I bought D500 for wildlife purposes recently. Not a new camera but new and nice for me love it.

I decided to take it with me on a trip to EU. I see a problem - it is heavy.

I currently have D500 + Nikon 17-55 2.8. I have not traveled much in the last few years. I suddenly see that I am not comfortable walking around with the camera. I got a camera shoulder strap black rapid but it does not help much - I can feel the weight

So... what should I do now? should I look for a more lightweight camera + zoom lens for travel? I have a Pentax K70 + Pentax DA 18-135mm WR.

or is it possible to get a Nikon lens that is not too heavy and gives a decent zoom range?

or another camera?

PS. I cant live with mirrorless - I still prefer the optical viewfinder.

thank you all
