    One day/Some day

    According to Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary, "one/some day" means



    at some time in the future:
    I'd love to go to China some/one day.


    However, I have once told that "some day" and "one day" are different in nuance.
    What is the difference?

    Not good that bit!

    I don't see any difference: I will go there one day. I will go there some day.

    One is not the same as some, but in this context one day and some day both mean an unspecified time in the future.
