    'I'm heading south' est plus normal (southward est plus poétique: "With short, sharp, violent lights made vivid, to southward far as the sight can roam ..." Adam Gordon)

    If you are heading southward(s) you are not necessarily going as far as the south of the country.
    Nor indeed if you are 'heading south'. If you are 'heading to the South' (avec mise de cap sur le Midi) that is another matter.
