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 24 2013: Tour guide was always a good one.

    Best was - Buy a good used camera or get the folks below to buy it for you.

    Talk to some local advertising / marketing companies. Tell em your plan and ask them what they want to have for promo shots.

    Hop on a steamer. Read the camera book. Go there and get them the best darn pictures you can.

    Wait for payment.

    Go to the next place.

    It's quite bit easier if you have a bit of money beforehand for upfront expenses.

    These days I expect there are probably websites you can sell the pictures through and I imagine the photos don't have to be professional quality what with photo shop and all.

    You won't make a lot but you'll be comfortable and have a hell of a trip going to places you never even imagined of..
