Grandma Rides A Roller Coaster For The First Time, Reminds Us To Always Stay Fearless

Posted: Updated:

Two Dutch grandmas prove that there's no age limit on conquering your fears.

Ria, 78, and An, 71, from the Netherlands, both nervously decided to fly on a plane for the first time. To prepare, Ria rode a roller coaster -- something she'd also never done before (video above). The pure joy she experiences on the ride is a delight to see.

Later, the pair bravely took their first flight through a marketing campaign by Vodafone which showcases people experiencing activities for the first time.

The telecom company provided them with a private jet from Amsterdam to Barcelona, and a tablet device to keep in contact with their families when they touched down.

And then they were off!

Watch the video below for their full emotional reaction:
