Havamal Snippets 18: Travel Far, Know More

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
18. He alone knows
who wanders wide,
and has much experienced,
by what disposition
each man is ruled,
who common sense possesses. 
Travel much and you will know more of human psychology/characters, than one who does not travel. Travel either in your mind (by reading books, websites, thinking etc), or in your body (by walking, socialising, meeting people etc).
