Cape Town - Doing something for the first time can be quite daunting yet thrilling at the same time.

An initiative by Vodafone called “Firsts” recently gave Ria and An, both in their seventies, their first flight experience, and they captured it all on video.

The 9 minute long video will instantly warm your heart.

The initiative is a sweet one, and has given these two women the chance to experience something they’ve never experienced before, and in so doing, has also created a new friendship between the two of them.

Vodafone's aim is simple: to connect people with technology and help them do great things for the first time.

There really is no other feeling better than doing something for the first time and getting that sense of euphoria. What is that one thing you’ve never done before but always wish you could do for the first time? Share your stories with us on or comment in the section below.
