    The meaning is a tad enigmatic without context.

    Re: take me places

    I am sorry to say that there is no context regarding to this sentence.

    I read this from a novel. In the novel, a boy, who is attracted by a girl, said this sentence to that girl. That's all.

    With no context, I would interpret it this way: her smile was so beautiful that my mind immediately started wandering (I imagined all sorts of nice places (associated with her smile, beautiful as her smile)).

    That is EXACTLY what "context" means.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
