The use of to or lack of...!
Hi, I am just looking for some assistance with the use of to.
Eg - go home/ go overseas! Why no to? I understand sometimes there are irregularities. Can someone please explain this to me!
Thanks for any help! :D

Home is where the Heart is.

overseas, being a fixed source of origin, shares semantic similarities with home. It's possible given its history that it refers to both the Source and the Goal (i.e., immigrants: from Europe or America back to Europe or America).
All the best, :D
