can anyone explain the rulings of a travellers prayer and fasts.

i've come from my home in birmingham to southall, london to a job and will stay here for 2 nights in a b&b inshaAllah.

the distance is about 120 miles.

am i counted as a traveller, if so can i shorten the prayers or join them? And can i break my fast?

Tomorrow (thursday) i will not be travelling as i am already in southall. But am i still regarded as a traveller.

i've heard from different people that the journey is not difficult so i cant break my fast or shorten prayers. Some have said that staying away less than 4 days is the limit to be a traveller.

can anyone explain. JazakAllah khair.

sorry for the long post
