Could you use just "Allons!" for "Let's go!" if there's no clear destination, or should both "Let's go!" and "Let's go there!" be translated as "Allons-y" ?

This relates to:
Using "y" with affirmative commands (L'Impératif) -

Bonjour Joakim !

No, in French you always need to use the verb "aller" with a location = to go *somewhere*.
When in English you can simply imply "where you're going" (I'm going now), in French you have to express it, if only with "y" (J'y vais maintenant).
I've now added a note in the lesson to explain this :)

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
