I'd choose the 15 and 31 and also a (non-limited) 55-300.

I can heavily recommend the DA 35, it is amazingly versatile with great IQ

My setup is DA 21mm (landscape + street photography) - FA 43mm (magic colors and rendering) - FA 77mm (words cannot describe how good it is).

I also have the 31mm but it's too heavy for travel.

Do you think 21mm will be wide enough?

21mm is wide enough for street, may not be wide enough if you are in a museum with not a lot of space to move around.

DA15 because you need the width. DA35 for general purpose goodness and macro amazement. FA77 because it is god.

But I prefer DA12-24 + FA77 + macro adapter. A two lens solution that does everything I need.

Hinman's and rparmar's suggestions +1.

I just received the e-mail that the DA15 and FA77 I ordered from Camera Canada have been shipped. So along with my DA35 I will now have this as my travel/light kit. I still covet the DA21 as a single lens solution for such things as wearing under my jacket when x-country skiing.

I've gone to several places with just the DA21 and didn't miss any other lens. But I usually bring either 21+70 or 21+50-200.
