"running away"

A friend of mine recently went to Texas for about a month to stay with some relatives of his. His parents knew what he was doing and even payed for his plane ticket. However, he's referring to it as "running away from home". It's maybe accurate in the sense that he felt the need to get away from his hometown, but it seems inaccurate to refer to it as running away. Am I just being nitpicky? What kind of things do you associate with the phrase?
