Well, the answer is that we don't know!
Partly it depends on the geometry and size of space. If the universe expands very little beyond the horizon we can see currently then it seems reasonable to expect it all to the same and uniform as we see here, that is made of the same stuff broadly.
If space is circular or round / spherical in four dimensions then we might loop round, that is travel long enough and come back to where you start.
If space is massive and unlimited then you could go on and on forever and never reach the 'other side', and the larger space is perhaps there is more likelihood of some alien conditions elsewhere, possibly even other laws of nature like different gravitational values, particle masses etc.
