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. =)

    Jan 23 2013: As long as you can acquire a decent array of entry visas...begin trading. In every country there are things, LEGAL things of course, that will make you a small profit if you trade them across the border. The great Gurdieff financed his travells this way, and in fact became quite wealthy after a time. I also met several people during my own wages-sponsored travels, who travelled all around the globe doing exactly that. How did they acquire their information? Not sure, but I guess the internet would be a good place to start.
