No matter how many times you repeat an experience, there's simply nothing like doing it for the very first time. Whether it be the first time you see snow, the first time you set eyes on the ocean, the first time you ride a rollercoaster, or the first time you experience virtual reality, the magic (or the confusion. Or the sheer terror) of those moments will stay with you forever.

Check out this list, compiled by Bored Panda, to see some people experiencing things for the very first time. The collection includes everything from newborn babies seeing their sisters, to 100-year-old ladies taking their first ride on a motorbike. Don't forget to vote for your favorite, and if you like this post then click here to see a bunch of animals also having some funny first-time experiences!
