Facebook Competition Recap



As some of you may be aware, we here at Fort Knox Self Storage ran a little competition over on our Facebook page where 1 lucky entrant had the chance to win a weekend away to our good friends at Balgownie Estate in the heart of the Yarra Valley. The competition prize consisted of 2 night’s accommodation as well as meals and a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival.

We had a fantastic response, with entries coming in from all over Melbourne and Victoria – some people new to us and some either previous or current self storage renters.

The grand prize winner, however, was St. Kilda resident and previous Fort Knox Self Storage unit renter, Belinda Pribil. For this blog, we spoke to Belinda, and got her to shed a brief light on herself and what led her to enter our Facebook competition.

The daughter of Hungarian migrants, Belinda lived in Geelong the early years of her life and moved to Melbourne at age 5. Later in life Belinda studied film at University, a degree which then took her all around Australia.

Deciding she needed a change, Belinda then completed a diploma in teaching ESL, a move which then saw her pack up her stuff into storage and travel to Vietnam, The UAE, Saudi Arabia and finally onto a city she had come to fall in love with Morocco.

After a long time overseas, Belinda had returned to Australia to have knee surgery when she decided to enter our competition. When we spoke to her on the day of receiving the prize, Belinda commented that she felt that she might actually win our competition when she entered it. A feeling which turned out to be somewhat of a premonition!

Belinda has yet(to our knowledge so far) taken her weekend away as she is waiting for her partner to return from Morocco. On her thoughts about going in winter as opposed to spring, “(It) looks like it will be enjoyed during the colder weather with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.” Sounds perfect!
