    Hi,

    I am writing about where I tend to go on holiday and how I get there. The sentence I am stuck with is as follows:

    To get to Paris, I normally travel by train.

    My attempt:
    Um nach Paris zu gelangen, fahre ich normalerweise mit dem Zug.

    Is that ok?

    Many thanks.

    Your sentence is not wrong, but it sounds rather artificial. A native speaker would simply say:

    Nach Paris fahre ich normalerweise mit dem Zug.
