Travelling safar distance

Q: If I intend to travel to a place which is more than 50 miles away (Place A), and intend to stay there for 20 days, I understand that I will not be a traveler and will not do qasr. However, after 20 days at Place A, if I travel to Place B which is 50 miles away from Place A, and intend on staying there for 5 days, will I do qasr in Place B?

A: Since the distance between point A and point B is more than 78 km, one will be a musaafir at point B.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
