I think you should cancel the trip and buy a few limiteds.

DA12-24mm and FA77 is all I need for most trips. Some of those have been in the British Isles.

Back around 1980 I bicycled Scotland on a tandem, and limited myself to a Leica CL with 40mm f2.0 summicron. I got great shots on that trip because I knew what the lens could do, and simply shot for the lens. I never really missed having a full kit.
Since then the trips I've enjoyed most are when I've taken at most 2 prime lenses; usually 28 & 50 or 35 & 90. Don't get so absorbed in the gear that you miss "being there."
