He returned to Germany in 2010 and set up the European arm of his travel agency business in Reisen, before immigrating to New Zealand to open Global Wings Travel in Richmond, near Nelson.   Having an office in Germany has allowed Heiko to offer Global Wings customers access to better rates on flights to and from European destinations and travel bookings throughout Europe and onto the rest of the world.

Heiko is an avid traveller still, who never tires of finding new destinations to explore, and is happy to share his own experiences with his clients.

Marisa Gundermann-Lunai, born and raised in Munich Germany, immigrated to New Zealand in 2009 to be with her Kiwi Husband and to study Tourism Management.

Growing up in fast paced Germany with endless travel options at the doorstep, it was a natural progression to become a travel addict and eventually to turn her passion into a profession.

Marisa enjoys creating holidays of a lifetime with her customers - the planning stage can be just as exciting as the holiday itself.

The Pacific Islands hold a special place in her heart, with their paradisiacal beauty, simplicity and diversity as well as cultural heritage; she greatly enjoys sharing her experience and insider tips with travellers.

Mother of 2 little children, she especially understands the needs arising when preparing for and travelling with small children.

At this stage in her life she emphasises on going on family holidays and trying to head back to Europe as much as possible to catch up with family and friends.

The world is your Oyster – what are you waiting for – go and explore it!
