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!

Team Rwanda See Snow For The First Ever Time

Team Rwanda See Snow For The First Ever Time

mybikehaswheels Report

Amanda Panda 2 years ago

My bestfriend lives in the deep south, I saw her reaction to seeing snow for the first time last January when she visited. She's in her 30s, but in that moment she looked like a child who's eyes lit up at the first sight of Santa Clause. I take the snow for granted, seeing her wonder and amazement gave me a fresh perspective.

I can't imagine how it must feel to be in your 90s, or living to be 100, and thinking about how much society and technology has changed since childhood. I was born in the 80s, and remember life before the internet and before cell phones. This woman has probably truly seen it all!
