If you were in a spacecraft traveling between galaxies, how would you measure your velocity?

Velocity is relative, as is everything in the universe. Relative to Earth? Relative to a nearby galaxy?

In space you are standing still. You are not moving at all.

If you see a galaxy over there you want to head toward, you apply some acceleration and over several million years it starts to get closer to you.

But your speed and your time to you always remains constant.
