go (back to) home


Senior Member

Do people say "go back to home" or "go back home"?
Like, if I'm on my way home, my friend sees me and asks me where I am headed, so I answer:
1. I'm going home.
2. I'm going back home.
3. I'm going back to home.

I think 3 is wrong. (go back to home sounds wrong to me, I think can't of a situation where we might use this.) And we use 1. if we simply mean we are on our way home. But we may use 2 if we like just left home but forgot something at home, and we are going back to get it.

Do you agree? How do you use it?
