2to be honest it depends mainly on where you are from. If you come from an english speaking country (US, Canada, Australia, Great Britain) then no problem, you can get a job teaching english easily, of course taking your lack of work experience into account you won't be paid millions but enough to survive as long as you have a bit of cash to start with.

3If you are from a country that is included on this list.
Then you can live and work in New Zealand for 1-2 years.
Lots of manual labour fruit picking, mussel opening, grape pruning work to be had. No experience necessary.

4#2, without a degree, teaching certificate or experience plus the fact OP won't commit for any significant amount of time, the chances of getting a teaching job are next to none.
Depending on when you want to travel, summer camps are a possibility. Camp California in Croatia is a good one. You work for 3 months and save a bit for further travels.
As #3 said, depending on your nationality, there are a number of youth mobility schemes which will allow you a working holiday visa. After all, the fact that you have no experience or qualifications (and possibly no local language) if you don't even have the legal right to work somewhere you can forget about finding work.

7When you are done perfecting your english skills, why not try the WHV. You have the option to stay for 12 months, but you can leave anytime you wish. That leaves a lot of doors open for working wherever you want and in whatever field. Bar tending, fruit picking or something with math, as English is not your strong suit.
Otherwise you could work on cruise ships too. Contract can be 4-6 months depending on what position you choose.
