Agreed on the 24-70. I have a 35mm 1.4 also, but when it's time for a trip I find the 24-70 goes in my bag.

I've done a 14-day trek to Everest Base Camp, countless excursions, and the 24-70 has come with me on every trip. It's versatile, fast (I use a 2.8), and sharp. It's just a touch heavy. But you cannot beat the practicality of having a nice wide angle whilst at the same time being able to get in for something a little closer.

"Reach" only increases if pixel-density increases. The Canon 7D MkII and the 5DS-R have the same pixel-density, so they have the exact same "reach" even though one is crop-sensor and one is full-frame. A crop sensor only uses part of the image circle of a lens designed for full-frame, so that's exactly the same as cropping in RAW conversion.

I travel quite a lot for work.

On long trips: I'll generally bring a tripod, 2 lenses that let me span a good range of focal length (10mm to 135mm for me), and the nifty-fifty.
On short trips: I'll bring 1-2 lenses and a mini tripod.

My go-to lens has always been the EF-S 10-18mm IS STM. But that's because I mostly shoot cityscapes.
