It was Sir Edmund Hillary who led Stephanie Arlaud to New Zealand in 2004. The 26-year-old French architectural graduate of Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland was obsessed with Hillary and with mountains. The Lord of the Rings had just been released and when Steph discovered the film landscape was not CGI, she knew she just 'got to go down there.'
