Well, if you guys parted on good terms, there's no reason why you couldn't meet and to catch up.
But seriously, it sounds like you just haven't found anyone that you connect with, and that getting back together with him would be easier than to keep looking. That's not a very good reason, and the distance is still going to be a major problem, so if you're actually thinking about this seriously, you NEED to first consider this one question:
IF (big "if") you get together and reconnect, would you be willing to relocate in order to be with him?
If the answer is "no" or "maybe I could get HIM to relocate for me" then don't. Just don't. It's not fair to either of you to put yourselves back into that same situation, and it's not fair for you to expect him to relocate for you when you're the one trying to get back together.
But if you ARE willing to leave everything behind to go be with him, then yeah, go ahead and contact him, tell him you're going to be in the area, and you'd like to catch up. Over dinner (not coffee).
