It's touring. Going slow is a plus. So is an upright position so you can see around the place. 60-80km is a shortish day, even on a heavily loaded bike except maybe in the mountains.
Brakes: swap out the pads for something decent like Koolstop in a cartridge holder. Seat: Get yourself a sprung leather saddle and break it in or get a good seat and a sprung seatpost. Bars: grab a set of trekking butterfly bars and some padded gel bar tape, use your existing levers. Mudguards: Some Bluemels or similar. Tyres: Some marathon supremes. Job done...
