You do not have to enter crashing gravity of black hole or to warp space to travel the entire Universe in a life span of one generation only. If you just keep moving with very comfortable acceleration a=9.8 m/sec^2, then in about a year you achieve the speed about 0.77c, in two - about .968c and so on. As your time slows down, it takes only 2.5 years for you to reach the nearest star, 11 years to get to the Milky Way downtown, 15 years to check in the Andromeda galaxy, and about 24 to cross the visible Universe.
