Reading and writing

Please translate the following paragraph:

Here is my plan for the summer. It might change later, but for now it looks pretty good.

I will go to China first. My company sends me there to join a trade organisation. Not I will join it but my company will. They have bought the plane ticket for me. Believe me it is much more expensive than flying to France. I have been looking at the weather forecast lately. China is getting hotter and hotter day by day. I hope to travel around China for two weeks. I can go to see the historic sites and beautiful sceneries while learning to speak some Chinese.

After travel in China, I will fly to Spain. My friend is getting married there. Because she is my best friend, we have know each other for over ten years, so I have to buy her a truly lovely gift. En, what will be a nice wedding gift? Will you have any suggestions?
