Looking for a quote about Mary Shelley and travel writing.

Who wrote something like "all great writing is travel writing and Mary Shelley was the best travel writer"? I think I read this on the Internet in the last 10 years, written by a currently living book reviewer. I'd like to read the article again. It was an article about the importance of travel writing.

Is it possible you are misremembering Mary Kingsley instead of Mary Shelley? I'm not finding the article, but Kingsley was a serious badass and travelled way more than Shelley ever did.

It was Mary Shelley. I think the writer might have been a woman.
