The implication in scripture is that Paul intended to take some spiritual pleasure and refreshment from his journey to Spain as well as partake in good conversation.  When designing Christian tours to Spain we often combine France and Spain as a journey of spiritual enlightenment and enjoyment.

The two countries which are separated by the Pyrenees and surrounded on every side by the sea are most enjoyable journeys when taken together as one Christian pilgrimage. Fascinating is the difference between culture, cuisine, atmosphere when crossing the border between the two. Haute cuisine is replaced by Tapas and French Baroque Music is replaced by the Tango.

Now that I am on my way to Spain, I hope to see you when I pass through, and to be assisted by you for my journey there, once I have first enjoyed your company for a while.  Romans 15:24

Tens of thousands of pilgrims feed their souls and reconnect with their religious beliefs as they travel the route of Santiago de Compostela on a journey of spiritual meaning and upliftment.
