    on the road/way to

    Hi,

    I cannot understand the difference between 'I'm on the road' and 'I'm on the way.' For example, 'I am on the way to the office and I'm on the road to the office' is the same in meaning?

    Thanks.

    That can mean I am driving right now, or I am travelling.

    That's not natural.
