Emacs already tracks this information, no need to add hooks.

(defun get-session-dirs ()
  "return list of directories visited in session"
  (delete-dups
   (mapcar (lambda (f)
             (file-name-directory f))
           file-name-history)))

List of directory returned is in reverse chronological order.
