Xenophilia – An attraction to foreign peoples, foreign cultures, and/or customs.

Allophilia – To go along with xenophilia is allophilia, which is to have a positive attitude for a group that is not one’s own.

Catholic – To be catholic is to be free from prejudice, embracing everything without bias.

Urbane – This word can sometimes have more of a pretentious connotation, but an urbane traveler is a well-traveled one, one who has been to enough cities to understand the customs of city life; urbane travelers are sophisticated and civilized due to their travels.
