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. =)

    Feb 6 2013: Hitchhiking, go to a road and wait patiently. Not all parts are good for stop and not all people will stop.
    All people that will stop are good people, some will invite you to their home, some will share food and drinks with you.
    Some will be friends for the rest of your life.
