I would add another vote for the Pentax 18-135 WR. I was recently in the same situation as the OP with a trip to Belgium - I got a K30 and chose to buy it with the 18-135 as the kit lens. I took that and my wife's vintage SMC F 50mm 1.7. While it was nice to have the option of the higher speed lens inside some dark environments, I'd say the 18-135 stayed on my camera 95% of the time. I found it to be a fantastic focal range for a walkaround - I had a wider wide end than my wife's point and shoot, but I was still able to punch in for some nice architectural detail shots. Over all, I was impressed with the IQ (although I am a bit green, and I don't have a lot to compare it to). The weather sealing was nice too - I was able to get some shots in the rain that I'm not sure I would have been comfortable snapping without that insurance.

{EDIT} For some reason the images weren't linking correctly - my guess it was user error. I have just made copies of the URLs instead if you care to view the pics.
