Perhaps I am a bit weird. I would never dream of taking that kind of equipment on a vacation. I travel once a year. My goal is to relax, enjoy myself, and hopefully have a new experience or two. I can take photos at home.
As my wife is not into photography, I take an ungripped 60D and 1 lens. Next year in Las Vegas, it will be the 10-22. I can't imagine carrying that much stuff around for three weeks.
This: I trekked through Japan with a 30D, 10-22, 18-55 is, 50mm plastic fantastic and a 70-200L F4, flash, mini tripod. It was a big mistake. I should have taken the 10-22 and the 18-55 (for portraits), no flash, no tripod, no 70-200.
If I were doing something similar today I'd get an Eos M kit and a 11-22 and it would save me a sore shoulder. And if I was dead-set on range I'd get a m4/3 system. When you travel light you can go to many more places, besides it takes away the phpotgrapher stigma making you more accesible... and making you more a participant than observer.
But that's just me (and Yashica^^).
