  1. A part of me would want to travel in a spaceship for the adventure, but another part would urge me to keep my feet on the ground. I wonder which part would win? Thanks for another great giveaway!

  2. Given the chance to take a trip in a spaceship? Oh yes indeed! I grew up reading sci fi books and always imagined that space travel would happen. Wouldn’t it be brilliant to see our beautiful blue green planet from space?

  3. I wouldn’t like travelling in a spaceship. I think Earth🌎 is more interesting! It is full of amazing places that are still to be seen and there is a lot of life . I prefer staying here 😁😁

  4. I would love to travel on a spaceship and see the earth from way out there. I expect that the perspective would make me realize the beauty of our planet and how small and insignificant we are. Living life down here puts us too close to the ugliness of our times and makes us forget that sometimes.

  5. Yes, I think I would if ask, especially if the accommodations were like on the Enterprise. Startrek always being a favorite. Opps did I just reveal my age bracket. HaHaHa, love it Sandra!!!
    Another great giveaway!

  6. Not sure what I would do, but I agree that there is enough here on earth that I have not yet experienced. Thank you for the giveaway.

  7. Sure. Why not? Chance of a lifetime! And I would look out the window to see earth from above.

  8. Although I’d love to see our beautiful planet from space and experience zero gravity, I’d probably keep my feet on the Earth 😍🌎

  9. There are plenty of wonders to explore in the world we are on, I don’t need to go into space.

  10. Well sandra I would want to travel in a spaceship and even live in space but truth is,
    I’m to dog gone chicken.
    Lol.
    Great giveaway sandra.
    Your artwork is lovely

  11. I don’t think I would mix well with space travel since I get terrible motion sickness. I would be fun but I think I’d be nauseas the entire time.

  12. I would love to travel on a spaceship. As a geeky Star Trek fan it is a dream. Also being able to transport from one place to another in an instant!😁

  13. Your “Cinque Terre” is wonderful!
    I’d like to ship to a place without pain.
    Love from Italy

  14. Sí, me encantaría viajar en una nave espacial, no perdería esa oportunidad.
    Qué belleza tu Cinque Terre

  15. If I were 10 years older and not worrying about returning, I would. But then, I’d like to have some really interesting people on board with me so we could have marvelous conversations.

  16. It would totally depend on what kind of spaceship, where it was going, and for how long. I’d like to see space, but am very much an earth dweller and don’t think I’d want to be in one that was traveling for the rest of my life.So a quick tourist jaunt in something relatively comfortable would be great, but I’ve no interest in being crammed in a Soyuz seat.

  17. Ok not to sound to whiney….BUT the first/last airplane trip I took from my home in Georgia to Jamaica landed me in the hospital there for 3 days😱Needless to say I do not fly well so as much as aid love to see our home from that perspective 🌎😍for the sake of my health and sanity I’m going to have to say NO! 😂 Thank you for this opportunity!❤

  18. That’s a tough question. lol. I guess it depends who was in the spacecraft…. Could they be trusted?! ..And do they have their flying license? XD

    P.s.. I would love to win that original artwork!! It’s so gorgeous!!!!

  19. Yes, I would absolutely love to travel with a space ship, to see the magic of the Universe. Thank you for the great Giveaway.

  20. Space – the final frontier! I would love to travel the starts. I grew up on Star Trek. Thx for doing these giveaways.

  21. Of course I would! I would wonder where we were going, though. Hmmm, I’m assuming this would not be a solo mission!!!! I want to watch out the window and sketch, not be hampered by driving the thing! LOL!

  22. Oh, Sandra, I love the drawing above. I am not sure what the little explosions are but the rest is just so cozy looking. Wouldn’t it be fun to sit here at a café with a glass of wine and look over the Mediterranean Sea at sunset? This looks very much like the Amalfi Coast towns in Italy. Let’s go!

  23. I would love the chance to see the earth from space and play around in zero gravity! So cool 🙂

  24. Ohh! I think I would be scared! I find it really hard getting on a aeroplane ! I like being on the ground.

  25. i remember when president kennedy started the space program, and did a school project in 1962…heck yeah i’d go!!! as long as i could draw in space….:)

  26. While a trip into space would be out-of-this world, I like my feet planted on the ground. There is so much to see and do right here.

  27. ooh, I think I will stay with my feet planted on Mother Earth thank you! Thanks for another wonderful giveaway!!!

  28. Hummmm… maybe if i were a little younger. But today…I’m going to have to say no thank you. But I love the give away especially the picture you painted. You are an amazing artist!

  29. I would absolutely LOVE to travel somewhere in a spaceship! Like most people that have commented, I grew up on all the wonderful sci fi shows and stories about space travel. After I finished sightseeing the universe though, I’m sure I would love to be right back here on Earth! Love your artwork, I saw it on a previous post of yours and as always, lovely and whimsical!

  30. I think it would be very interesting & what an opportunity! I don’t think my head would like it though as I can’t even do rides at an amusement park anymore!

  31. Yes, I’d travel on a spaceship, as long as it’s round-trip. I’d say “no” to the one-way ticket to establishing a colony on Mars.

  32. I don’t think I could do it, but I know my brother would and let me tell you he would be one tickled trekie!

  33. Part of me thinks it would be really exciting and life changing but I think in the end I would be too chicken.

  34. If I were offered the chance to travel in a spaceship, I would politely decline. I do not even travel by plane! I suppose one could say that I am pretty well grounded!! LOL

    1. Hmmmmmm…..good question! If it was all expense paid round trip, then I’m in! LOL!

  35. Nope, not me. The adventure of flying in a plane nearly gave me a heart attack. I literally almost didn’t return home, because I was afraid to get back on the plane. Lol.

  36. Hi, I would certainly WANT to travel in a spaceship but I don’t think that my body could physically handle it unfortunately, so I’d have to give my spaceship travel opportunity to a family member and live vicariously through them 😉

  37. No I wouldn’t want to travel in space. I have motion sickness, don’t think I would be able to handle the flight.

  38. I would love to travel into space – as long as it’s not a one-way trip! It would be amazing to see the Earth from up there!

  39. I’m not sure witch question to comment on, so I’ll comment on both. Space would be exciting but scary. I’m curious about what is out there. Also dogs we have 2 dogs. They are getting old. They’re like family. I’m getting old and don’t know if when they die, if I Don go first, if we would get another. Thanks for giving me a chance to win.

  40. Sure, space travel would be a fantastic experience. I have been to teacher space camp and space travel would be the next step.

  41. While I am not afraid of heights and I love to fly, I’d rather see other’s photos from space. It’s not for me..

  42. Yes I would accept Uber space. As long as the space driver had good reviews. Lol but it sounds like fun with a space ride.

  43. I live very close to a spaceport, Virgin Galactic, but I’d be terrified of ending up floating toward the sun, so I’ll leave space travel to the millionaires. Thank you for another great giveaway!

  44. Honestly the adventure sounds amazing and I would say yes after long contemplation because it would be also be a bit terrifying.

  45. heck yes! it sounds terrifying but would be an incredible once in a lifetime thing. how can one turn that down?
