A "resort" is a way, but one that you don't want to use. It's generally bad.

You really want to find a "way" to travel more. You could work longer hours, and be paid more for that; you could ask for a raise; or you could beg your family for money. You obviously don't want to do the last one, but the first two don't work, so you "resort" to begging for money.

For "means", I like to use criminal justice. In a trial, you need to prove that the suspect had means, motive, and opportunity to commit the crime.
Motive: a reason.
Opportunity: there was a time they could have committed the crime.
Means: that they were physically able to commit the crime.
