Will one be a musaafir when visiting one's parents who live safar distance from one's place of residence?

Q: I stay in Durban but my parents stay in Newcastle. Every school holiday I go to visit them for about 2 weeks. Will I be considered a musafir when I am in Newcastle?

A: Yes, if it is not your residence, rather it is just your parents' home.

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