One would think after the first 300 miles or so, Sabine Moreau would have realized that something was off with her GPS directions.

Instead, it took her 900 miles over two days to realize she'd overshot her destination--by more than 800 miles.

Moreau, who started her trip in her hometown of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium, was headed to pick up a friend at a train station in Brussels, just 93 miles away, reported Gizmodo.

She turned on her GPS (and turned off her brain) and, after more than two days, several tanks of gas, a nap and minor car crash, ended up in Zagreb, Croatia.

"I was distracted, so I kept driving," Moreau, 67, told El Mundo. "I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept driving because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn't in Belgium anymore."
