Stefanie Van Erps studied to become a primary school teacher at the Erasmus University College in Jette, Belgium. She has been teaching since January 2007, mainly in special primary education for children with speech and language problems and children with autistic spectrum disorder. She combined work and study in 2009 and obtained an additional Bachelors degree in Special Education. After a couple of years working in Belgium, Stefanie decided to go and teach abroad. She followed a postgraduate course on North-South Relations and Development Cooperation in Kortrijk. Afterwards, she went to Peru to work in a school project named Urpi Sonqocha located in Cusco. That is where she met Gilder Anaya Delgado, her future husband. She discovered the town of Curahuasi, south of Machu Picchu, where the project, camping and B&B are located.
Gilder was a raft guide for 10 years in Cusco, Peru and for 4 summers in Norway until he moved back to his home town Curahuasi in 2012 to settle down and start a family. He was always highly respected for his professionalism, techniques and responsibility.
The last 5 years he has been dedicating his time starting up and building out the tourist service Casa Lena together with Stefanie.
