Hello forum members,

I'm going away/out tommorow to my sister's. She lives about 50 miles north of here.

Which one works for you? 'away' or 'out'? why?

Thanks.

To go out is to leave the house for a short time. To go shopping or for walk.

To go away is to leave the house for a significant time - go to on holiday, on a overnight visit, or a longer absence from home like staying in student accommodation while studying.
