    The verb 'go' and 'be'

    Hi! How are you? Thanks for all your replies!


    My question:

    1.- Tomorrow, I will go to a faraway place=I will still be in my
    town, and I´ll go away

    2.- Tomorrow, I will be in a faraway place= I won´t be in my
    town.

    The meanings are different, I know.
    I would say I am sure about the first sentence,
    but I don´t know if the second one is right. I don´t
    know if I can use the verb 'be' here and if it makes
    any sense.

    Thanks again!

    Jesús

    1. Tomorrow, I will go to a faraway place.
    => you will travel to a faraway place.

    2. Tomorrow, I will be in a faraway place.
    => you will be located/situated in a faraway place.

    All the best.
