Avril is retired and for the last 14 years of her working life was employed by the British Consulate-General in Dusseldorf. During that time she had regular contact with the BBCD. She attended several events as a guest and, being Scottish, particularly enjoyed the Burns Nights.
Avril's passion is travelling. At the age of 19 she left Scotland to au pair for a year in Zurich and she never returned! She has lived/worked in Brussels, Vienna, Rome and Sydney. She has finally put down some roots in Dusseldorf.
