Getting In Touch After First Date

"How Do I Get In Touch After a First Date?"

I have a question about how to get in contact with a guy after the first date. I just recently started dating again after taking a break for probably close to a year after a bad breakup. I met this guy in a coffee shop, he asked for my contact info, and a week later he asked me out for dinner. The date was great - we chatted all night, have a lot in common, yadda yadda yadda. At the end of the date, he had asked me if I wanted to stay in contact and I said yes, and he replied "well I'll shoot you a text some time!" Thing is, a few days after that date I left town for a week and a half, which he knew about. I've been back in town for a few days, and I'm not sure at this point if I'm supposed to be waiting for his text or if I should just get in contact with him. I had assumed he'd be in contact before this, and I don't want him to think I'm not interested

Any advice? I feel a bit silly asking, since I hate the idea that there are "rules" to dating and I usually just do what feels right, but I feel like it's a weird situation with me going away right after the date.
