Not allowed to break the fast when staying for more than 4 days

I am traveling on the first day of Ramadan to a city 450 km far from where I live. I will stay there for 4 days, then I will come back. My question is: Can I break fasting during those 5 days or just while traveling?
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, may Allah exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.
Know that the traveler whose trip is for lawful objectives and its distance is 83 Kilometers, or more, then he is allowed to shorten the prayers, combine them, break the fast and do all the rulings that apply to a traveling person.
If he intends to stay less than four days in a given place, he can also enjoy all exemptions that are permitted to a traveling person. But if he intends to stay four days or more, he is not allowed to shorten prayers combine them or break the fast in Ramadan.
Allah Knows best.
