hi tomek,
the harmonica alone is fun but rarely attractive enough to provide you with sufficent money. if you combine it with anything it will become a show and will bring the public and the money.
all you need is to hang it from your neck and add -
a guitar, a drum, juggling balls, juggling chains, etc.
if you have your hands free - use them.
otherwise you can allways use youe feet, if you can jump a hacky sack or even put a spoon under youe shoe-sole for rhythm.
mind you - harmonica solo is provoking pity, even if you play happy jazz (like i do), but any addition makes it joly - colorfull clothes and a hat too.
i'm a harmonica master and i've been financing myself with it for the past few years, but without the guitar (on which i'm very average) i could never do that.
good luck and happy travels.
