Laugh and cry as these Grannies take their first ever flight

An and Ria are in their seventies.

THIS IS RIA. She’s 78, and this is her first time on a rollercoaster.


Ria is part of Vodafone’s Firsts campaign, which is celebrating people doing things they’ve never done before. Like riding rollercoasters… at 78.

But that’s not all. Ria has also taken her first ever flight, along with her new friend An, who’s 72.
