WATCH: Two abuelas flying for first time will make your day!

Just in case you needed a reminder that you're never too old to try something new, look no further than the story of a pair of Dutch abuelas, An and Ria. At 72 and 78 years old respectively, the two had never flown on airplane in their life. So when the company Vodaphone offered to fly them for Barcelona on a private jet to vacation together as part of their video series aimed at spotlighting various "life firsts," they wholeheartedly agreed.

Luckily, a camera was there to catch their reactions as they made their trip—and the video is so amazing, you just have to see it! Trust me, it's pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

I don't know if my tendency to help a stranger who is suffering is because of culture or the way I was brought up.
