For the travel, if you just went to one country then put "Travelling, Country X". If you went to two then list both, if you went to any more then I'd just put the continent ("Travelling, South America"). In my husband's 9 month trip he went through, uh, I think 10 countries? Hence he just put "Travelling, Europe and Asia".

Again, that's just what I would do, no guarantees CIC will like it!

imm5490 , sponsored questionnaire, it states if you have any relatives living in canada to put them down stating your relationship and where they live, i have an uncle and cousins living somwhere in canada, but our family has very little to do with them, and therefore do not know their address, or even the cousins surnames, they are female and now married but unsure on their new surename, should i just explain this or leave them off?

Do you know your Uncle's name? Do you know which Province or City he lives in? If you do, I would put it down and add 'address unknown"; similarly, with cousins, use their original name (it is not a requirement to change your name when you marry in Canada) and "address unknown" + Town/Province if you know. You can probably find them on FB, lol.

You do need to put them down. My advice to you is not to leave anything off the application that they ask for, always be honest.

When in doubt, read the application guide http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...toc.asp#3999E4
