1-I went to a universtiy in New York but my family lived in Boston. Every summer I went back with my family.
Could this be used if my parents are not accompanying me on the trip but I am simply going back home to them.
Without any further context, I would read it that the student stayed in New York during the school year and went back to Boston to be with his family during the summers.
Thank you both.
Maybe here there is a difference between AmE and BrE.
