Peter Van Geit

Welcome to the personal blog of Peter Van Geit, a Belgian who settled down in India since 1998.

I was born in Lokeren, a small town in Belgium on 19 Januari 1972. I did my Master of Computer Science in the University of Ghent after which I started as a software engineer in Barco, Kortrijk. In April 1998 Barco sent to Chennai, India to technically guide a team of young Indian software engineers.

My first year in India I bought a Royal Enfield Bullet Citibike 500cc and discovered most of South India on bike covering 40.000km in the first 2 years. I used to drive from sunrise to sunset for several weeks from town to town discovering new places and wonderful nature around each corner.

On this blog I collected some photos taken during my trips.

Note - this blog has not been updated for many years. Recent updates are on Facebook

Recent treks and photos are published on the Chennai Trekking Club site, my trekking blog.

" The Wind Rider"

Sixteen years gone riding the wheels two .
Ever a pleasure for a rider true
May be influenced by a western or two
Ever a pleasure on a steel horse true

Nor do i ride to race and win
Nor given to speed to raise the adrenaline
Yet miles to pass and wheels to spin
In to tis heart the lone ranger rides in

the engines hum a heart to beat
Highways roads to village street
Rain and sun never to feel
riding to the horizon in the horse of steel

To let go and fly to the sky
Riding the winds till they die
To feel the wind on the face
A passion to set the roads ablaze

Riding the wind all day long
Whistling the tune of favorite song
Every road has a bend right or wrong
the wind rider rides in the hearts for long
