Assunto:  draws nearer
 
Mensagem:  I was trying to say the following sentence to an american friend: "quando se aproximar a data da minha viagem". And I translated it as "when my travel date gets near", but then he replied with a very intereting sentence, which was:

"- you mean, when your trip time draws nearer"

So, this "draws nearer" is a common expression?
