Tamron 18-270 will do some good close-ups, a decent width for landscapes and good telephoto for street shots.

If you can go a bit higher, I would prefer the 15-85: that bit extra for travel and depending on how close you need to be for florals will be pretty good there as well.

A jack of all and pretty good, good for travel and not to bulky for street and candids.

35mm f1.8. Then be prepared to 'move about a bit' in compositional terms...
