- I would have texted the next day if I had an awesome time.
- He seems pretty non dependent on his phone so I would give it a few days.
- With him traveling I wouldn’t be worried until he got back from his trip.

Under normal circumstances I would make contact the next day. The travel could affect that though. Do you know when he was leaving? Traveling at this time of the year is challenging and he might have been going to visit family where he'll be busy most of the time with them, so I wouldn't worry too much. I'd still have found time for at least one brief text somewhere along the way, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad sign that he didn't. Everything else you described about what he said near the end of the night sounds encouraging.
You could always initiate the contact - maybe tell him you enjoyed the date and hope his trip is going well and that you look forward to seeing him again when he gets back. You might be able to tell a lot from the kind of response you get, but again if he's with family for the holidays he's probably not going to be able to be as responsive as he normally would be.

I have never texted someone after a date. If you are the type to not see anything wrong in that then give them at least a day and then reach out. I just don't recommend it.
