Mensagem: 

I know I can use 'towards' meaning...in the direction of something.

For example:

'He ran towards me.'..meaning he ran in my direction.

 

I'd like to know if I can use 'towards'when the person/thing or place that I'm going to meet ,find or arrive at.... is far/not visible/ not a straight line...

For example:

I'm in another neighborhood,  I have to catch a bus to go home... Can I say??

'I'm going 'towards' my house.'(?)

'That bus is going 'towards' São Paulo.' (in the direction of...)

 

Not sure I've made myself clear...anyway...thanks for now...
