There are certain online jobs you can apply for. Search for them, you can work anywhere in the world.

If you are a native speaker of English you could teach English in certain locations.

Tough, but, yes, telecommuting jobs would allow that. You would only be able to stay some place as long as your tourist visa allows though. Teaching English is another way, but your options are increasingly limited and you may be more powerless. Though, if you want to stay more than a few months someplace, telecommuting won't be a good option. If you're young and a software developer, you may have a decent shot at some jobs in bigger cities.

It is nearly impossible to work legally in nearly every country. However, you can perform private services for cash, if you can find a client. and make sure it stays under the table. I'm thinking,, for example, of teaching English, giving private lessons to a person who can afford to pay. Your tourist visa or entry stamp usually states clearly that you may not accept any kind of gainful employment.

But in many countries, a person who wishes to hire you (such as the director of an English-teaching school) will know how to obtain legal status for you to work, which is not too difficult in most countries if you have a skill exceeding that of any local.

Another option is the volunteer services in return for room and board in various places.

I taught English and lived in India, Ukraine, Russia, Mexico, and Argentina. This profession also allowed me to travel to many other countries (I'd guess 50-60).
So, look up the CELTA certificate, take the one-month course, get on daveseslcafe.com to find jobs, and you'll be working in no time. (I'm assuming here that you have a bachelor's degree of some sort. If not, it will be more difficult to find teaching work...but not impossible.)

You can find English teaching jobs with relative ease in China and Argentina without a degree. Once you've spent a year or so teaching and have a provable skillset, as well as (ideally) some videos and maybe even a letter of recommendation from your previous employer, it becomes somewhat easier to find work without a degree. The best way to go about it if this is your lot (as it is mine), is to go to whatever country you're interested in for a week or two and use sites like daveseslcafe.com's forums to try to connect with teachers and jobs. Try to find a place that will let you do a demo; if they like you, then they can, depending on the country, either make the claim that you are a "foreign expert," "business consultant," or simply bribe the powers-that-be in some countries. Also, in some situations, it's not even a legal mandate that you have a degree so much as it's just because that's the common requirement, or the market is flooded.

But DEFINITELY take a CELTA, TEFL, and/or TOEFL course. They are easy as anything, are usually the bare minimum requirement, and will open many doors for you.
