Suppose I am in London, and I am going to Paris. If I am just mentioning to someone the fact that I’ll soon go to Paris, can I use fahren as a generic translation of to travel?
I might go by Eurostar, or I may fly, or I may drive, or catch the ferry. I may be undecided at this point or maybe I have decided but just don’t want to cover the mode of transport when I say to the other person ‘I am going to Paris’. Can I get away with using ‘Ich fahre nach Paris’? Or should fahren to be used only if I am traveling by ground transport (car, bus, train, …)?
