What do people usually say when they leave home in the morning: "I am going to the office" or "I am going to work"? Another example: "Were you at the office/work yesterday?" I am sure about the second sentence but not at all sure about the first one.
And one more question.
Can we say: "A friend of mine came to London two weeks ago. In some days he is going to L.A."? That sounds strange to me. To me "in a couple of days" or "in a few days" sounds much better. What do you think?

I'm going to work. - yes
I'm going to my office - when you are inside the building and headed for your office (room).
Were you at work yesterday? (at work - working place)
Were you at the office yesterday? (office - your room)
'In some days' doesn't sound right to me. Your alternatives are correct.
He is going to LA in a couple of days / in a few days.
