Actress Mandy Moore accomplished an amazing feat that not a lot of people can claim — and that doesn’t include being on the top-rated series, This Is Us. The star recently crossed off a major coup from her bucket list: successfully climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
The SAG award-winning actress shared her incredible journey with numerous pics on Instagram. She revealed that climbing the 19,341-foot peak—the highest in Africa—has been a goal of hers since she was 18.
“And we’re off. #CountdowntoKili has arrived,” she captioned one photo. “I’ve been dreaming of seeing her and doing this since I was 18. Couldn’t be more grateful for this crew and everything this experience is bound to be. Let’s do this!”
Moore’s inspirational summit got us thinking about bucket lists and just how motivating and useful they can be. If you’ve got a big dream or two that you’d like to accomplish one day, here’s why you might want to create one for yourself.
