I have troubles with filling of travel history in my Express Entry application. I've had 55 trips for 10 years. Almost every trip includes several cities and countries. Do I have to enter specific dates for every place which I visited?
Examples of difficult cases:
1) I drove 2300 km through all Iceland. There were many small villages and campsites where I stayed. I don't remember exactly these places. I even don't have bookings in some of them.
2) I stayed in Slovenia but made short daily trips to Italy. Do I have to mention these visits?
3) I entered to Estonia, got Estonian stamp in my passport, drove 20km and entered to Latvia. Is it required to mention that I visited Estonia? I even didn't stop there.
The Express Entry application has the limitation which allows applicant to enter only 45 records. I've crossed borders about 150 times for last 10 years.

Some of my thoughts:
  1. You have to mention every passport stamp, as you'll be providing copies of those with your passport
  2. Mention each country (so for the 2300km trip through Iceland you just put Iceland)
  3. Try to mention every boarder crossing, but i'd include a note to this end in your LoE and say a more detailed written travel history could be provided upon request and mention you haven't entered any 'high risk' countries (if this is true).

You can add the rest in LOE. But yeah dont put cities, they dont care about where you stayed and which hotel you were in.

I have a somewhat similar number of trips, border crossings within EU, Slovenia-to-Italy day trips, etc.
I just entered all of my border crossings, and for multi-country roadtrips I also entered the main countries I visited or stayed the longest.

For example, I entered EU via Poland by car (crossed the border), stayed in Germany, made short trips to Italy and Austria. For Travel History, I entered only Poland (my stamp) and Germany (the country where I stayed the longest).

Also, for the main country of stay I entered a major city (Munich vs Schwangau in Germany) or a region (Sudtirol vs Bressanone in Italy or California vs Santa Cruz in the US)
