Question about UK residency and travelling

#1
Hi guys,

I'm just starting to do my online application and have come to the bit about UK residency, the whole have you been been a resident of the UK continiously for the last 5 years, ignoring stays of 28 days or less.

Well I've been travelling around Australia and New Zealand for the last 5 months (yeah, dirty little backpacker) as well having been on a Raleigh International expedition to Ghana for 3 months 2 years ago.

Do I need to mention these in this certain question? Technically I wasn't a resident of these countries as I had no permanent address, but they were all stays of over 28 days.

Apologies if there is a topic blatantly staring me in the face about this, though I did search, just a bit hard to search for it specifically.

Cheers for any help.

Yes, mention them as they'll need to do background checks.

However I would state your permanent residence was always in the UK.

The online application isn't a proper application anyway. It's a form of interest apparently, so you'll still have to go in and fill it all in by hand. So you can double check with them then.
