How would you advise a person who would like to explore the world, yet has no money at all?

Apart from trying to obtain some cash, what would you tell these sort of people who would like to learn new cultures and meet people of various backgrounds yet has no financial means to do so? Would love some creative answers. =)

    Another way might be to specify exactly where you want to go, and why you want to go there. Put together a productive reason for going there, like if I visit China I will explore Chinese food and come back and open a restaurant. Then ask your family for the money to go to China.

    Where do you want to go, and why do you want to go there?
