    Question Away from a country for sth.

    Dear teachers,

    I have a good friend who is living in Australia.
    I am going to write to her,
    but I am not sure if there are any grammatical mistakes in
    the following sentence in bold:
    My family will be away from Australia for holidays in Japan for
    two weeks.
    (My family are living in Australia now, and
    they have already decided to visit Japan next month.)
    Could you help me please?


    If I say a person is away from a country for a few days,
    does it mean that the person is not in the country for a few days?

    Thank you.

    Kitty

    Yes, but it doesn't say when they will be leaving.
